Ukiah Unified School District has demonstrated its commitment to teaching healthy eating habits and the importance of physical activity in a few different ways. Through the district's Growing Healthy Kids From the Ground Up program, all schools in Ukiah Unified School District have organic gardens on campus and a garden/nutritional coordinator who oversees them. Salad bars have been installed in all of the district's schools, the salad bar option is offered during lunch every day. The district is currently planning how to stock the salad bars with produce fresh from the school garden. This program has caught the attention of Emeril Lagasse, a prominent television chef, his personal foundation has donated more than $27,000 to the program.
