Watertown Public Schools has continued to provide the students with healthy meals via the foodservice department throughout the pandemic, and teachers have done well in keeping students educated on nutrition-related topics. The schools continue to be dedicated to quality nutrition even in the face of supply chain issues. Their mission, per their 学校营养计划, is and continues to be to promote student health, well-being, and ability to learn through quality food, physical activity, and other wellness initiatives. To emphasize the importance of nutrition in accordance with their 健康政策, Watertown continues to partner with Framingham State University’s 营养学协调程序and invited student dietitian, Charlotte Tomczyk, to teach high school students about sustainable agriculture. 

FSU student dietitian, Charlotte Tomczyk, teaching Watertown High School students about sustainable agriculture.

On May 2nd, 2022, students learned about production, economics, environment, and society’s role in sustainable agriculture. They also learned about food insecurity, hunger, and food deserts in the U.S. Students were asked to think about why and how agriculture and sustainable practices around agriculture applied to them. During this lesson, students also gained a few tips on what they can do in their everyday lives to be more conscious about different agricultural issues.
