Schools recycling cartons as MILK Act offer choices

Area schools may have more milk options in the cafeterias if new legislation is passed in the U.S. Senate, but recycling of cartons has definitely seen a bump in Sturgeon Bay.  The Milk in Lunches for Kids (MILK) Act was introduced last month in Washington D.C. by U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson to allow schools to offer more than just low-fat or fat-free milk.   Jenny Spude, school food director for the Sturgeon Bay School District, says she has not seen much change in milk consumption, or requests for that matter, the past few years.   However, she says one milk-related change seen recently at school came about by a student-driven, carton recycling project three years ago. [SPUDE] The program was started by student Georgia Feldman at Sunrise School and was part of a Door County Community Foundation Youth Grant, according to Spude.  T.J. Walker Middle School also implemented the successful initiative last year as the students continued the program for the older grades.
