What We Do

Our work to improve childhood nutrition in Rhinebeck schools involves several initiatives.

Nourish Rhinebeck – Led by Chancellor Livingston Elementary School parent Kerri Karvetski, Nourish Rhinebeck focuses on raising awareness among parents and other stakeholders about childhood nutrition issues and covers news and trends on the national, regional and district levels. Our tools include:

RCS School Committees

Nutrition Committee – The Nutrition Committee focuses on school-based projects and taste tests in the classrooms and the cafeteria.

Wellness Committee – The RCSD Wellness Committee focuses on nutrition education, physical activity, and other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness. Isabelle Burkhart and Terri Hall are the parent representatives on the Wellness Committee.
