CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (KTTC) – On Monday, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will visit a local school in Clear Lake, Iowa.

He will be recognizing the Clear Lake Community School District for its trailblazing and innovative efforts to improve the nutritional quality of meals for students.

Earlier this month, the school district received a Healthy Meals Incentives Recognition Award for their efforts to ensure the meals they serve are healthy, nutritious, and enjoyable for students.

Clear Lake was one of the first four winners of these awards, jointly created by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Action for Healthy Kids as part of USDA’s Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative. This is a key aspect of the Biden-Harris Administration’s National Strategy on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, which committed to ending hunger and reducing diet-related diseases, and health disparities by 2030.
