I am happy to express my appreciation to the Pastors, Sis ters and Parents of our school children for their continued par ticipation in the Diocesan School Lunch Program. The Third Annual School Lunch Workshop to be held October 12, 1953 at St. Agatha School, affords me the opportunity of expressing a word of encouragement to those who have so zealously pro moted this program. I realize that many parents sacrifice time and effort to make the school lunch program a success. Care ful planning and much time are necessary to enable children to h/ve the benefits of a well-balanced and nourishing meal. Our devoted teachers give continued important support to the program not only in stressing the nutritional value of meals, but also in their supervision of the dining hall. The school is a place for living as well as learning. To make this living a beneficial experience in the life of a child, it is neces sary to have the cooperation and participation of ail the agen cies responsible to the school working in close harmony. Such harmony will bring about the development of the true Christ ian citizen. The responsibility the child has in preserving his health is well taught in this harmonious atmosphere. The Friday, Oct. 9, 1953 The Federal School Lunch Program serves as a special program in serving, preserving and conserving the health of our school children. The em phasis is placed upon the word “Serve.” In the beginning the program was initiated to care for a need the need to pro- “Stew Good” to Miss at Any Time 9 30 home, the school and the state unite to give us a program that produces a worthy citizen and an alert child of God. I wish to commend all those who have given so generously of their time and effort to the School Lunch Program in the Diocese. I congratulate them on a work done well. It is my fervent desire that this program continue to flourish and to expand. I trust further that all schools that can, will become a part of this school activity. v Devotedly in Christ, a. m, Registration at St. Agatha’s Cafeteria 10 a.m Welcome Father George Kennedy Greetings Father Bennett Ap plegate Mr. Victor Warken, State Supervisor, State of Ohio, Department of Commodity Distribution.

Working on the funda mental principle that the body governs the mind, the wisdom of keeping the body in good working order was seen. The learning ex perience of a school lunch hour, the preserving of the health and a conserving of energy made those responsible for our school children to endorse the Federal School Lunch Program. Parents and teachers recognized that our children are growing up and, that the health and personal development of the child is essen tial to scholastic achievement. The School Lunch program is a new kind of health program—one that recognizes the inter-relationship of physical, mental and social well being. There is a consistent inte gration of physical health with mental and social well-being. A well-balanced meal is a real tool in helping the teacher and the boys and girls in the classroom find ways of handling the many prob lems that growing up brings. The stage is set for the boys and girls to have a related experience that affords not only the nutritional need, but a mental and social need as well. The program truly serves the school in a three fold way. Thirty Six Schools in Program During the past year there were 31 schools in the Diocese which held the National School Lunch contracts. The thirty-one schools served Type “A” lunches. The Type “A” pattern is designed to provide one-third of all the daily nutrition al requirements. The number of participating schools according to location in our diocese are as follows. Columbus 19 Outside Columbus ..... 17 TOTAL 38 FOOD REIMBURSEMENT As usual the funds appropriated for the National School Lunch Pro gram were inadequate, due of course to the tremendous increase in participation This situation of necessity cut the funds made avail able to each individual program. Therefore each school program was reviewed separately by the Chi cago Regional Office and our Di ocesan Office, before the 1952 53 applications for School Lhnch were approved by the Government Then, of necessity, a variable rate for Type A was set at .07, .06, .05. .04 per meal, depending on specific needs of localities, and par ticularly upon the price charged to children The charge made to children for the Type program was set at .01 and .02 The total amount of cash reimbursement from the Treasurer of the United States paid to all schools in the Diocese for the year 1952 53 amounted to $38,058.17. FAMILY RATES Most of our schools have a fam ily rate when there are more than two children of the same family in school. Some schools offer reduc ed rates if the childr en pay by the week. All needy children in the diocese were served free a hot Type A lunch each day. DIRECT SURPLUS COMMODITY DISTRIBUTION The amounts and kinds of sur plus commodities that were distrib uted to our schools this past year helped immeasurably to balance the individual program’s budget, and above all, helped to keep the cost of the meal within the price range of the majority of the chil dren The diocesan office acts as the direct distribution center for the Columbus area. The total val ue of the surplus commodities re ceived during the school year 1952 53 was $72,015,28. DONATED LABOR The great interest and time and energy given by the mothers and members of Pl A and parish groups are among the reasons that we are able to keep our labor costs at a minimum, thereby enabling the schools to serve a Type A lunch within the price range of the majority of all school children.
