When schools in California's Sausalito Marin City District return to session this August, they will be the first in the nation to serve their students 100 percent organic meals, sustainably sourced and free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). More than 500 students at Bayside MLK Jr. Academy in Marin City and Willow Creek Academyin Sausalito will eat fresh, local food year-round, thanks to a partnership with the Conscious Kitchen, a project of the environmental education nonprofit Turning Green. Moreover, the program will address the controversial issue of GMOs in school food. As environmental news outlet EcoWatch reports:

This program is the first to take a stand against GMOs. While the long-term effects of GMOs are still uncertain, a growing body of evidence links them to a variety of health risks and environmental damage. An estimated 80 percent of items on most supermarket shelves contain GMOs, and they are ubiquitous in school food programs.Read more: http://www.commondreams.org/news/2015/08/19/meet-nations-first-school-district-serve-100-organic-meals

Cleveland Clinic's Golden Arches will come down after 20 years of business.

Come September, heart disease patients at the Cleveland Clinic will no longer be able to enjoy a post-checkup Big Mac. The hospital will close its on-campus McDonald’s location on Sept. 18, Cleveland.com reported Wednesday.

The franchise had a long-term lease on its space and has been a presence in the hospital’s food court for 20 years—and the hospital’s leadership has been trying to push the chain out for at least a decade.

Los Angeles can't make it rain, but it can shield its precious water with "shade balls" -- 96 million of them to be exact. By deflecting UV rays, the opaque spheres are expected to protect more than 300 million gallons of water from evaporating in Southern California's harsh sunlight every year. The shade balls also deter wildlife from contaminating the reservoir, shield the water from wind-blow dust and discourage algae from forming on the water's surface. City officials hailed the shade balls as very cost-effective.
