All Shelby County elementary schools and intermediate schools were the first schools in the nation to earn the coveted Healthier US School Challenge Gold Award with Distinction on a system wide basis. This was the result of a collaborative effort between administrators, school nutrition staff, wellness coordinators, faculty and the school community.
The HealthierUS School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program. Sponsored by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), the initiative encourages all schools take a leadership role in helping students to make healthier eating and physical activity choices that will last a lifetime. All schools in Shelby County champion the HUSSC and work hard to make changes to their school nutrition environment in order to (1) improve the quality of the foods served, (2) provide students with nutrition education, and (3) provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity.
