Ojai’s Food For Thought Program
Food for Thought works with the local community to support, educate and inspire our school children and their families to make healthier food choices.
We are a diverse group of community members collaborating with Ojai's public schools to nurture an awareness of food and its relationship to health, society and the environment. Our volunteers and staff coordinate experiential learning opportunities in schools and participate in outreach, advocacy and coalition-building in the greater community.
Health Services strives to provide accessible, quality health and nursing care for every child. School nursing services include identification and follow-up of health problems, crisis intervention for ill and injured students, control of communicable diseases within the school environment, and special nursing services such as treatments prescribed by the student's physician which are necessary for the student to attend school.
