National School Lunch Week, October 12-17
Parents, students and staff at Westlake Elementary School took advantage of a break in the weather today to sample the new school menu items provided by Revolution Foods. Even the most cautious and smallest gourmands responded enthusiastically to the handmade Chicken Enchiladas, Chili Cheese Tamales and Baked Ziti. Parents report that their children who have taken the new hot lunches are bringing home glowing reviews. Teachers also appreciate having a tasty healthy alternative available without having to leave the campus.
The new menu, which debuted on the first day of school, features healthy, largely organic and regionally sourced sustainable meals scratch-cooked in the Revolution Foods kitchens. All meals come with hormone-free milk and a choice of fresh fruit or vegetable; a vegetarian option is available daily.
