New federal law will change school lunches for next school year


WILLMAR -- A new federal law will require adjustments in school lunch programs locally, and Willmar School Board members fear it could lead to more food waste.

Board members discussed the new law at a workshop meeting Monday when they received an update on the district's Wellness Policy.

The district has achieved most of the goals in the Wellness Policy and is working on the others, said Dietitian Michelle Synhorst.
