Re: Lansing High School Needs YOU


I put out a note to Amanda Segar with MIFMA and she is forwarding it on the list serve.

I don’t know if the school has the recipes from the National Dairy Council but they may be helpful. Here is the link.

A couple of other ideas; make table tents with health and nutrition information for them to read when they arrive. The messages could be ones that help inspire them, such as what breakfast does for the brain or what exercise and the brain. I would be glad to help with this if you think it would be helpful.

One last idea that isn’t food related but was done in Kalamazoo, is to purchase alarm clocks for students. If we could get a local foundation to support the idea, maybe the students could receive it for attending breakfast.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Fellow Farm to School Supporters:

As apart of Eastern High School staff and Positive Behavior Interventions & Support team, I am in search of positive ways to help encourage students at Eastern High School in Lansing Michigan to get to school on time and prepared for class each day! 


We've recently begun providing (a warmly received) fresh fruit and veggie snack during sixth hour of our new extended day program AND a universal dinner service to all students each afternoon from 3:45-4:30pm. These programs have heightened students interest in GOOD food! To support our students at the start of the day, we are in search of donations and/or highly competitively priced local foods to offer at the start of each school day. 


We PREFER fresh, whole food that is easily distributed. No need to wash or process, our school food staff is willing to wash and process with other daily prep! Any amount helps! To contribute, suggest or simply encourage our efforts Please contact Jekeia Murphy at or (517)755-4262.
