Gilroy Healthy Kids Initiative

Updated November 19, 2013


GILROY—Students in Gilroy and across Santa Clara County will have access to fresh, healthy food in their school cafeterias thanks to a unique local partnership spurred by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson’s Team California for Healthy Kids initiative.

Torlakson launched his statewide initiative soon after taking office to bring together a broad array of public and private partners to improve learning by improving the health of students. The initiative brings together schools and community support to ensure students have access to fresh water, healthy food, and physical activity throughout the day, including the important hours they spend in school.
