Feedback form is now closed.

The Louisiana Public Health Institute entered into a partnership with Propeller: A Force for Social Innovation and The Healthy School Food Collaborative (HSFC) to evaluate the impact of a multi-component intervention and policy change intervention at three charter schools in New Orleans, Louisiana. After an in-depth plate waste study of more than 20,000 school lunches conducted in 2014, we have consistently found students consuming half their lunch. Research suggests that environmental factors and school policies may be associated with under consumption of school food. During the 2015-2016 school year, LPHI, HSFC, and Propeller implemented a multi-component intervention and a no-cost policy intervention designed to increase consumption of school lunch among charter school students in New Orleans. This session will explore environmental factors in schools and the impact of school policies on consumption.
