Did you know…
LOSD School meals meet the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act certification standards and reflect the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and ChooseMyPlate.gov . This means our lunches offer whole grains, unlimited fresh fruits and vegetables, nonfat and 1% milk. Students serve themselves from a fruit and veggie bar that has fresh salad greens, at least two types of vegetables and two types of fruit. Students are encouraged to choose fresh fruits and vegetables that are available with every school lunch.
What’s happening this year………
In the month of May 2019 Hallinan Elementary hosted a test kitchen where more house made items, more items sensitive to dietary restrictions and more organic and fresh choices were offered. It was a hit!
The most favorite new offerings were Rice and Beans with chips (Veg, GF, DF), Pulled Pork Sandwich, Beef Sliders (made with all-natural Painted Hills Beef), Chicken Street Taco’s (GF, DF with no cheese), French Toast w/organic blueberry compote, and Cheese Calzone.
We are excited to be able to expand these offering this year to all the other schools menus.
We will again be participating in the Oregon Farm to School. This grant will allow us to purchase local farm fresh produce when available that support our farmers and return resources to our economy. Last year we were able to purchase from Luscher Farm, Our Table Farm Coop, and Painted Hills beef.
Painted Hills beef will be in our spaghetti and tacos again this year.
Our produce distributor this year will be Duck Produce, out of Portland, OR. Duck Produce is a Food Alliance Certified distributor that distinguishes foods produced with respect for people, animals and the environment. Duck Produce carries an abundant supply of locally grown foods
Let’s Do Lunch!
Two hour delay- No Breakfast Service. No change to lunch menu
School Closure- Returning after a school closure lunch menu is subject to change. This helps reduce throwing food away. The school office will be notified of the menu change in the morning.
We hope this isn't needed!!!
