Parents and community members will have a chance to learn more about changes to education in Del Norte County on Wednesday, taste the school lunches their kids eat and view movies, slideshows, animations and other media projects submitted by local youths.

Building Healthy Communities will hold a community collaborative meeting from 5:15 to 7:30 p.m. at the Del Norte Veteran’s Hall.

BHC representatives will talk to parents about the Del Norte Engaged Learning Model, which was implemented earlier this year, as well as the new menu options available at Del Norte County schools. 

At the beginning of the 2012-13 school year, the Del Norte County Unified School District introduced new menu options including meatloaf muffins, whole grain pasta salad and a salad bar, according to a BHC press release.

Dinner and child care will be provided.
