Engage Organics is beyond proud to announce our partnership with the Oakland Unified School District to bring healthier options to kids at school!
For the 2015/2016 school year, Engage Organics’ own Mexi-Mix will be featured in the OUSD’s recipes, adding a splash of sugar-free, salt-free, organic, gluten-free, and non-GMO flavor!
The OUSD chefs loved our seasoning blend and found it to be a great replacement for their fajita recipe. On top of that, it meets FDA guidelines for reduced sodium in schools.
Healthy Food = Happy Kids (and Parents)
Recently KTVU did a story on the link between food and behavior in schools. Schools in Sausalito did a two plus year study of children’s behavior called The Conscious Kitchen. The pilot program was able to demonstrate that there was a clear link between behavior and food choice.
Discipline cases have dropped dramatically, attendance has improved, and food waste is down throughout the Sausalito Marin City School District since the beginning of The Conscious Kitchen.
The healthier our food is, the healthier and happier our children will be. Engage Organics wants nothing more than for more people to be healthier. If you’re interested in seeing our healthy seasonings in your school district, drop us a line!
