Manteca Unified Nutrition Education earned the Silver Turnip the Beet Award. 
USDA recently awarded the first-ever Turnip the Beet awards, recognizing outstanding Summer Meal Program sponsors who work hard to offer high quality meals that are appetizing, appealing, and nutritious. Summer sites have the opportunity to positively impact children’s healthy development by offering nutritious meals and encouraging children to develop healthy habits at a young age. Plus, kids vote with their feet in the summer! Offering meals that children enjoy can help sustain and increase participation.
