Students at Parker Varney Elementary School will be taste testing "triangle" pizza and spicy boneless chicken wings in the upcoming weeks as a result of a school lunch survey about 2300 students completed about the school lunch program.
Beech Street Elementary students tested macaroni and cheese this past week. The macaroni and cheese not only pleased the students but also met the USDA requirements for calories, saturated fat, and sodium. The results were a "thumbs up".
Jim Connors, Director of School Food Services and his staff have been working on an action plan with the Parker Varney students to add some of the items that the students had requested. The key is to add some of these items on the menu while still meeting the USDA regulations for the National School Lunch Menu. Watch out for some of these additions for June and the fall of 2015!
