Northwest Education Services LifeSPAN program provides nutrition education lessons in the classroom for students in grades K-5. LifeSPAN lessons focus on hands on cooking and recipe tastings to encourage students to try new foods and eat more fruits and vegetables. LifeSPAN also supports Farm to School programming for the entire school community by coordinating the Northport school hoop house, incorporating school grown food into the cafeteria as well as providing a summer garden-based nutrition program for students attending summer school. The goal of LifeSPAN is to create a healthier school environment and encourage all students to stay active and make healthy food choices to fuel their growing bodies and minds.
