FoodTeacherAmy says: Hi Everyone! During our last full week of school, we had some Internet glitches that affected our final posts. But, as you can imagine, our lunches were just more of the same. Looking back through the posts since we began this project, it’s pretty shocking to discover just how limited the lunch choices were. Take a look at the breakdown of what was served in our cafeteria:

Beef Patty/Empanada: 3

Pasta (spaghetti, ravioli, lasagne or other): 16

Grilled cheese: 10

Chicken Patty: 15

Chicken: 16

Ground Beef with Chips: 4

Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich: 9

Cheeseburger: 11

Tuna Sandwich: 1

Turkey and Cheese Sandwich: 2

In the fall, we are scheduled to have a working kitchen in our school, which means our lunches will be prepared on-site, rather than delivered from a satellite location. On the plus side, this should mean that our menu options will expand. However, due to all the rules and regulations set up for school kitchens, the food itself will pretty much be the same. Like most school food, it will simply be defrosted and reheated. I hope that we can change this, not just in our school, but in all schools.

I can’t say what will happen with this site come fall. It may continue exactly as is, it may continue with a different focus, or it may change altogether. I can, however, say that we at TYWLS of Astoria will continue to strive for fresh, tasty and healthy school lunches for all kids. I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished with this site already. Thanks for reading, and for joining us on our mission. Have a great summer!
