FOOD SERVICE NEWS...
We continue to explore new and exciting recipes that are appealing to our students, while also infusing more nutrition. This summer our school district was one of eight districts asked to showcase a recipe on WMUR-TV’s “Lunch Lessons.” On August 1, 2016, Food Service Director, Brian Coffey, went to Manchester and prepared our gluten-free chocolate brownies made with black beans instead of flour. The added protein from the black beans makes the brownie extremely nutrient dense. Last spring we served the black bean brownies at our health fair at Conway Elementary and they were a huge hit with both students and parents.
“Try-it-Tuesdays” is a new program where we allow the students in all schools to sample a product we would like to offer on our menus and get their feedback. All the recipes for the “Try-it-Tuesdays” program are nutritionally balanced and meet the U.S.D.A. guidelines.
