Healthy Schools

    We believe that all kids deserve the chance to live well.

    Children spend more than half of their waking hours on a school campus, and they consume up to 50 percent of their calories there. That’s why LiveWell seeks to ensure that all Colorado kids get great tasting, nutritious meals and the physical activity they need to thrive in and out of school.

    LiveWell's School Food Initiative

    LiveWell’s School Food Initiative partners with food service directors and their staff to serve up freshly prepared meals that taste good and are good for students too. We do this by providing workshops and training, on-site chef support, strategic and culinary action planning, and operations and marketing technical assistance. It’s our mission to make sure every child in Colorado eats well, lives well, and stays well. We invite you to join the movement to put fresh ingredients and fun cooking back on the line!
