Colorado potato growers donate salad bars

The Durango School District 9-R was the recipient of nine salad bars as part of the Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools initiative. Between the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee (CPAC) and Potatoes USA, all nine of the salad bars that the district needed were donated, the associations said. Students and staff alike were excited about the new salad bars and the new lunchtime opportunities they provide.

CPAC’s Linda Weyers and Savannah Schlaufman traveled to Florida Mesa Elementary School in Durango where one of the brand new salad bars was donated to visit with students and staff. The students were very appreciative of their new salad bar, and gave CPAC thank-you cards and letters to express their gratitude for our donation, CPAC said. The letters and cards are now on display at the Colorado Potato Administrative Committee office.

CPAC said the newly donated salad bars will allow students to select more fruits and vegetables as part of their lunch, which is the goal of the Let’s Get Salad Bars to Schools initiative. During the visit, Krista Garand, Student Nutrition Services Director for Durango School District 9-R, commented how the salad bars would encourage their students to eat healthy during lunch.

CPAC also recently donated salad bars to three San Luis Valley schools in Colorado.
