Trying out new recipes at our All-Staff Back To School Meeting today!
This is penne pasta with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, and spinach sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. No sauce, just some olive oil over the noodles - It was delicious!
Look for it on the menu this month!

We hope your summer break is off to a great start! We know ours is.
Our Assistant Director and Registered Dietitian, Amy, recently went to the United Fresh Produce Association 2017 Convention in Chicago.
School Nutrition leaders were invited to attend the conference because we help to serve a very important produce market… Students! Amy met other leaders in school nutrition and even one of the keynote speakers, Donna Martin, EdS, RDN, LD, SNS, FAND, who is the President of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics!
The convention was inspiring and we are excited to continue to improve our fruit and vegetable offerings! #innovationstartshere #schoolmealsthatrock
Even our herbs are doing their Friday Happy Dance today! 🌱🤗
We hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
Homemade pico de gallo & guacamole samples today at Pine Ridge Elementary. Some of our favorite comments:
"I had never tried guacamole before but I tried it and I LOVE it."
"Can I have all of the guacamole?"
"This isn't good... it's awesome!"
Always fun when students are willing to try new things!
Today is officially Stop Food Waste Day, but we hope every day is treated this way. Each person can take simple steps to help stop food waste.
Stop Food Waste Tip: Revive your veggies!
Think wilted veggies have gone bad? A quick soak in ice water for 5-10 minutes can fix the problem – Bendy carrots will straighten right up, lettuce will crisp, and limp broccoli will find it’s strength again!
Just like our bread, our pizza is also made fresh daily!
We start with whole wheat crust, add sauce, cheese, and toppings, and put each pizza through our pizza ovens during lunch!
This reduces waste because we're able to bake the pizzas as needed and not have too much left over 🍕
This Friday is Stop Food Waste Day. Did you know that 40% of food in America is wasted? “Wasting food wastes everything. Water. Fuel. Labor. Money. Love.” Go to www.savethefood.com to learn more about how you can help to stop food waste!
This student shook up his lunch today when he headed over to the Deli Line and saw us making salads! Sandwich, wrap, or salad - All of the ingredients are available daily! 🍞🥖🌯🥗
Today is National Hummus Day! Hummus is made of chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans), olive oil, garlic, lemon, and tahini, which is made of sesame seeds.
Did you know hummus is available in the cafeteria? Look for it on the deli line, the Fruit & Vegetable bar, and in some On the Go options!
Tomorrow is National Grilled Cheese Day! Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup will be served at every school in the district. Add some fresh fruit and veggies to make it a healthy, balanced meal!
Welcome back from Spring Break!

We had a blast sampling Kale Chips at Central Middle today. They went over really well, and some people even ate plain bunches of kale! That's one way to get in some Cruciferous Vegetables #NNM2017

Attention Forest Hills Public Schools staff and parents! We are bringing back our Adult Menu, featuring sandwiches, salads, soups, smoothies, and other healthy options! Order in advance and have your lunch delivered to your building.
January’s Food Focus is Dark Leafy Greens.
Dark leafy greens are packed full of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients including vitamin A, vitamin C, antioxidants, fiber, folate, vitamin K, magnesium, calcium, iron, and potassium. They also perform many functions in the body like promoting good vision, supporting immune function, regulating blood pressure, and may even help in preventing some types of cancer. 🌿💪
We are thankful for our food service employees at FHPS!
