Chicken Pozole soup was a delicious and nutritious way to kick start the year. We loved hearing from students how much they enjoyed it!
Nutrition Services-Operations Manager, Angelina Rios, delivered food to the food bank that wouldn’t hold over the long Holiday break.
Students in Ms. Herried's class at Midway Elementary got to try a fun new fruit for the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Rambutan! The students learned about the name, history, nutrition, and how to eat it! All of the students enjoyed trying this unique fruit and some even liked it!
October was National Farm to School Month. To celebrate, school menus were full of food from local farmers. Here, students at Southern Heights Elementary were enjoying roasted butternut squash from local farm Carpinito Bros. in the Green River Valley. Cabbage from this month’s coleslaw is from local farms in the Kent Valley. Our daily salad bar has a variety of fresh fruits and veggies with many items from farms in the Kent Valley and Puyallup. We’re also serving Rosemary whole grain rolls made with flour from local farmers with Shepherd's Grain and local dairy every day at lunch! #EatLocal
