RUSK CHEROKEEAN' THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1949
SCHOOL LUNCH SUPERVISOR
SPEAKS TO ROTARY CLUB
Mrs. C. Metz Heald, Supervisor
of School Lunch Program in local
schools was the guest speaker on
the Rotary program Wednesday
noon at the Rusk Hotel.
This program began in 1940 and
was set up to take care of 175
children and has grown since that
time to where it will handle ap
proximately 500 children, Mrs.
Heald said. This program started
with the PTA and operated und«r
their supervision until the school
board took it up and helped make
it a well-rounded program. The
program is self sustaining and the
board does not have to allocate
funds for maintenance. This pro-
gram started with $2.50 in the
treasury and has grown into a
modern plant with several thous-
and dollars worth of equipment.
It meets with the State Health De •
partment's requirements and all
personnell have to have health
certificates before they can he em-
"Parents can help this program
by teaching their children the
value of a well-balanced diet. It
is just as important that they be
taught the funndamentals of nu-
trition as it is they be taught
arithmetic or English or any
other subject," stated Mrs. Heald.
"The national school lunch pro-
garm reimburses us 8 cents' per
child for a type A lunch and 6
cents for lunches on which no milk
is served. In other words, we have
to check each child as he takes his
food to see that he does or does
not take milk. Type A lunches
include milk,' added Mrs. Heald
"There are a few states which
do not have adequate systems of
distribution of commodities furn-
ished to schools and Texas is one
of them. There is a definite need
for a better system of distribution
of some fifteen commodities which
includes cheese, dried fruits and
potatoes and other foods," stated
Rev. Stuart Rohre was inducted
into the club as a new member.
He was a member of the Cisco,
Rotary Club before coming to*.
Rusk. J. E. Brown was visiting,
Rotarian from Jacksonville and
Charles Heald was introduced as
Junior Rotarian for September
by Charles Weatherly.
