It was a packed house at the Vienna Elementary School cafeteria on May 23 for the opening of the first Real Food for Kids elementary school salad bar in Fairfax County. Kevin Concannon, Undersecretary for Food, Nutrition & Consumer Services at the USDA was on hand for the ribbon cutting celebration. 

"Fairfax County Public Schools Food and Nutrition Services Department is excited to be teaming up with Real Food For Kids™ to launch the first of 141 elementary school salad bars," said Rodney Taylor, Director of Food and Nutrition Services for Fairfax County Public Schools. "The RFFK salad bar will serve as the catalyst for transforming school food throughout FCPS."

Additional salad bars are expected to roll out at elementary schools across Fairfax Country during the 2016-2017 school year. Stay tuned for more details on this exciting program and how you can help!
