At the Head of the Class


We partner with New Hampshire schools in which 50 percent or more of students qualify to receive free or reduced meals through the National School Lunch Program. We work together to improve their student nutrition and physical activity environments. We also conduct school staff trainings and offer mentoring, coaching and ongoing support to school nurses, faculty and food-service personnel.

This initiative is one component of UNH Cooperative Extension’s Nutrition Connections program, which is funded by the USDA Food and Nutrition Service and the NH Food Stamp Program.
