Food for Thought

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.
