DPS is proud that locally grown products comprise 40% of the food purchases for the meal programs.  DPS has taken aggressive steps to discontinue menu choices which lack nutritional value and contribute to obesity (i.e. no chocolate milk).  DPS has institutes a school gardens program, which not only provides locally grown ingredients for meals, but teach the children the joy of growing the food and entrepreneurial skills with a marketing program.
