i heard wawasee was getting rid of junk food in the vending machines and lunch line. is this true? i don't buy it but people were wondering. who better to ask?

The new state law requires more restrictions on vending machines as well as foods on the a la carte lunch lines. This, in addition to the recent announcement by soft drink companies that they will not be selling regular soft drinks to schools, means there will be some changes for next fall.

The school district will have in place a new policy on these issues for the 2006-2007 school year.

The details have yet to be worked out.

Rumor has it that we will only be allowed to sell raw broccoli, bean sprouts and plain yogurt from the milk of yaks. :-)
