So, what do students say about our school meal program?
Sixth-grader Elizabeth says her favorite school lunch is the veggie pizza. While most students choose the pepperoni or cheese options, she enjoys the veggie. “It’s weird. All my cousins hate vegetables, but I love them! They taste good and are very healthy,” she points out. “Veggie pizza lets me enjoy pizza while still getting my veggies. I’ve been a pizza lover since I was born!” Elizabeth also loves the fresh produce bar. “If I don’t get a serving of fruits or vegetables each day I just don’t feel good.”
Haim, one of our fifth graders, says he likes Mexican food, especially the enchiladas because they’re soft. “Some people don’t like them, but once you try it, it tastes good!” he said. Just like Elizabeth, Haim is also a fan of fresh fruits and vegetables, “I like the salad bar because it’s nutritious.”
Fourth graders Chloe and Rebecca like the BBQ chicken. “It’s fun to eat, and I like the flavorful sauce,” said Chloe. “I’m about to have heart eyes while I eat my favorite food!”
We are so happy to hear our students are enjoying our new menu items. It gives us heart eyes, too!
