School Life & Services: Hot Lunch Program

   

Chef Paul Clark will be managing our food services for 2016-2017, preparing nutritious meals for our students, as well as snacks for our Pre-K and K classes and “Garderie.” Meals will be prepared fresh each day, and will feature locally sourced produce as well as herbs from our very own garden. Chef Paul favors non-GMO ingredients and techniques like baking, roasting, and broiling over frying. 

In addition to preparing meals, Chef Paul will also educate our students about sustainable practices like composting food waste and eating with non-disposable cups, plates, and silverware—practices that will be applied in our own kitchen and lunch room. 

This will be a one-year pilot program, and we will need increased participation in order to sustain this lunch option beyond this year. We encourage everyone to participate!
