Food for Thought

Posted September 10, 2020 at 7:12 pm by

The San Juan Island School Dis­tric­t’s Food for Thought Pro­gram is back at it!

Though most of the staff was fur­loughed, Chef Andy, Ash­ley Spen­diff and Ker­ri Starr are work­ing hard to pro­vide health­ful FROM SCRATCH meals to all chil­dren in San Juan Coun­ty ages 1–18 FOR FREE.

Check out the school web­site for cur­rent menu options and the link to the week­ly pre-order form!

*The meals are free to chil­dren, and the cost is reim­bursed to the dis­trict by state and fed­er­al nutri­tion pro­grams. We can­not claim meals that are not picked up! PLEASE remem­ber to pick up the meals you have ordered or we lose the labor and food cost asso­ci­at­ed with mak­ing these deli­cious meals. Waste not, want not!*

P.S. Dona­tions to the pro­gram can be sent to The Dis­trict Office PO Box 458, Fri­day Har­bor, WA 98250. Please put “Food for Thought” on the check! Thank You!

Here is a peek at the ‘Chef’s Menu’ offer­ings from ear­li­er this week:

  2. Great to see some nutri­tious “Brain Food” on the menus, instead of starchy fats filled lunches.
