What does “sustainably-raised” mean?

chickens

Just because an animal is being raised for food, that doesn’t mean it has to have a terrible life. There are plenty of farms in America that provide adequate time outside and opportunities for socialization, so that chickens can be what they are meant to be. The Happy Eating Place is learning about how chickens are raised, and we are committed to buying chickens and eggs from farms that use sustainable practices, including healthy, organic diets and stress-free environments.

We hope that you will look for animal products that are labled “raised sustainably,” “free range,” or even better, “pasture-raised.”

On Friday 4/19, we are serving chicken and cheese taquitos for morning snack. There will be meat-free or cheese-free options as well. The taquitos are made with corn tortillas and will be baked, not fried.

$1.50 each

If your child plans to buy more than one, please pre-order with your classroom teacher.

Thank you!
