What is the Alternative Food Program in New York City public schools? Who decides what food is on a school menu? How can you influence the food choices at school?

In the spring of 2017, CUP and Community Food Action at New Settlement Apartments collaborated with Teaching Artist Elma Relihan and public high school students from the Comprehensive Model School Project (CMSP 327) to get the scoop on the Alternative Food Program.

To investigate, students got out of the classroom and into the cafeteria, surveying community members and interviewing key decision makers on the Alternative Food Program, and identified ways they could get involved in the types of food served in schools. This poster is a guide to what they discovered.
