HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter LunchroomsInformation about the HealthierUS School Challenge: Smarter Lunchrooms initiative.
The HUSSC: SL is a voluntary certification initiative established by the USDA, Food and Nutrition Service, to recognize schools that are creating healthier school environments through their promotion of nutritious meals, physical activity, and nutrition education.
The former First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! Campaign incorporates the HUSSC: SL by acknowledging schools that are actively working to reduce the childhood obesity epidemic. Four levels of superior performance are awarded and the USDA is offering monetary incentives with each level: Bronze ($500), Silver ($1,000), Gold ($1,500), and Gold Award of Distinction ($2,000).
