Wellness Committee

Huerfano School District RE-1 is fortunate to be grant funded by USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, the Live Well Huerfano County/ District One Gardner Salad Bar Grant and John Mall High School Brunch Snack grant, Huerfano Las Animas County Family Resource Center Healthy Snack Break Grant, and the Gardner School Foundation 7th and 8th Grade Snack Grant. With these grants, Huerfano RE-1 has been able to provide healthy snack options at no cost to the students as well as providing a salad bar at lunch in Gardner every Wednesday.

Huerfano Re-1 has a Wellness Policy in place to support and facilitate learning through good nutrition and physical activity. The Committee is made up of board members, administrators, the school nurse, food service management, teachers, parents, students and community members. There will be quarterly meetings to discuss current programs, implement new plans and monitor policy compliance. We invite everyone to attend and share their ideas how to promote and develop lifelong wellness behaviors
