2.Salad Bar: Sandra asked Scott Porter about why we do not have a salad bar. Mr. Porter said he would look into it. Chloe mentioned that it seems to be a cost issue. Jane wondered why we couldn’t use the funds from the Healthy Snack grant to help offset the costs of running the salad bar. Lydia Moholland might be a good person to give us information about this issue too.
