The Orlando Magic, along with Magic forward Glen Davis, encouraged students to eat healthy and raised awareness for the positive changes to Florida school lunches with a special event on March 19 at Rosemont Elementary School. Glen Davis, the Magic Dancers, STUFF the Magic Mascot and representatives from the Magic joined students during lunch at Rosemont Elementary School talking about the importance of eating healthy and exercising.
The event was part of an ongoing partnership with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, which assumed responsibility of the state’s school nutrition program in January 2012. The department works to improve the nutritional value of school meals, direct more locally-grown fresh fruits and vegetables and encourage kids to choose the healthy options available. The department partners with teams across Florida who can carry the message that it’s important to eat right and stay active in order to compete in the classroom and on the field or court.
