Sustainability and Food

Sustainability and Food

Food at Steamboat Mountain School does not consist of your typical school lunchroom fare. Our chefs work hard to provide healthy, balanced meals that contain ingredients from locally-sourced and small-scale sustainable farms.

Sustainability

Through involvement in the Sustainable Agriculture Program (SAP), Steamboat Mountain School students have the opportunity to connect directly with their environment and their food. Connecting students with the food they are eating is one of the fundamental ideals of SAP. By exposing them to these concepts at an early age, they are more likely to continue healthy living and eating practices throughout the rest of their lives. Students gain a connection to the foods they eat and gain knowledge of how they are produced. They learn how food can be produced in a safe and sustainable way.
