The Healthier US School Challenge-Smarter Lunchrooms, or HUSSC-SL, is a national initiative from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service which recognizes schools that have voluntarily met school health and wellness guidelines or criteria.  In this course, we will be talking about the purpose of the HUSSC-SL award and criteria schools must meet to receive an award.  We will also offer tips and some of the lessons we have learned working with schools over the past few years.  How to apply for an award.
