Thumbs up to Kale & Farro

Farro, Kale, Butternut Squash
Garlic, Onions and Cranberry Juice

"It's good- I love it!"
On January 19th, students stepped out of their comfort zone and tried something new! Food Service Director, Chris Piercey, and Whitson's Chef Hurley, visited our cafeteria to offer samplings of Farro, Kale, and Butternut Squash. Most of the students gave it a thumbs up. A few stated they liked the farro but weren't as sure about the butternut squash. Comments included: "I love it." "It taste like crunchy salad." "It's delicious!" After lunch, a number of students who did not try it stated they wished they had and hoped the Chef makes a return visit in the future.
A few kids started as a thumbs up, then changed their minds.
This Kindergartener gave a mixed review, but would eat it again.

Two thumbs up!
The servers gave students stickers for trying something new.
