The Dunbar Hill Yearbook is part of the TreeRing/TreesfortheFuture.org program. Trees will be planted for every yearbook sold at Dunbar Hill, making us a TreeRing Green Yearbook School. For more than 30 years, Trees for the Future has been planting trees across the world that not only help to end deforestation, but help with poverty and hunger providing families with food and income through their Forest Garden Approach. Since 1989, more than 187 million trees have been planted and more than 28 thousand acres have been restored.
Chicken nuggets, pizza, mac and cheese... how does that sound? Starting April 1, Hamden is pleased to add heat-at-home foods to our take-away meal program. Our breakfast and lunch program will include new fully-cooked food options that can be heated at home. Sandwiches are yummy - but variety is the spice of life!
Fresh fruit and veggies are also included in the food options available.
The take-away meals are available at our five food distribution locations: Church Street School, Ridge Hill School, Hamden Middle School, Hamden High School, and the Keefe Center. Meals are available Monday-Friday, from 9:00-12:00 for any child 18 years of age or younger.
Here's a copy of the upcoming menu. Help us spread the word - we want to keep our kids happy and healthy!
