Calling all Boston Public Schools students and families! We want students to love school food, and we need your input to make this happen.

The goal of BOSFoodLove is for Boston Public Schools students to love school food. You can join the conversation at our BOSFoodLove Coalition meetings starting in Fall 2018. These meetings are open to all students, families, and school staff.

We will have other opportunities starting in January 2019 for you to voice your opinion. Want to get more involved in BOSFoodLove? You can apply to become a Family or Student Champion to support our work:

About the program

Our focus

We plan to find ways to improve meals to make sure they meet the needs and preferences of all students. We want to generate excitement about fresh, healthy school meals so that students want to eat those meals every day.

Family and Student Champions

We are looking for Family and Student Champions to support the work of BOSFoodLove.

Family Champions will provide insights on what is working and what can be improved with school food. They will also help us engage with other families and plan discussions hosted by BOSFoodLove. Family Champions will receive small stipends for their support.

Student Champions will help us engage more Boston Public School students in our meetings and cafeteria efforts. They will bring the valuable student voice into our work.
