Donna West

Brownwood Elementary Child Nutrition Program Manager Donna West stands at the register during lunch Tuesday at the school to ensure students have selected the required amount of fruits and vegetables for their meal.

The nutrition offered in school meals has become a major focus within the Scottsboro City School District, and one district employee recently took this initiative to our nation’s capital in an effort to showcase what is being done in Scottsboro to help kids eat healthier.

Earlier this month, Brownwood Elementary Child Nutrition Program Manager Donna West traveled to Washington, D.C., to take part in a national gathering hosted by The Pew Charitable Trusts in support of efforts to improve school nutrition. West said she was chosen by Pew to attend this conference after she had served on a task force with the organization as it worked to gather information on school kitchen infrastructure needs throughout the U.S. a couple years ago.
