The Healthier US School Challenge (HUSSC) is a voluntary national certification initiative for schools participating in the National School Lunch Program. It supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Campaign by recognizing schools that are creating healthier school environments through their Food and Nutrition Service (FNS). The initiative encourages all schools to take a leadership role in helping students to make healthier eating and physical activity choices to ensure a healthy lifestyle. The Latta School District works hard to make improvements to their school nutrition environment in order to (1) improve the quality of the food served, (2) provide students with nutrition education, and (3) provide students with physical education and opportunities for physical activity.
