CCS Cafe Update An ongoing conversation with CCS Chef Extraordinaire Elizabeth Skypeck

Hungry students are never great learners - and that makes the job of our Food Service Director Elizabeth Skypeck one of the most important in the building. She does an incredible job of providing delicious, healthy meals to the over three hundred people who live and work at Charlotte Central School every day. This morning we found her unpacking a fresh delivery of farm produce - a table stacked with kale, carrots, squash, parsley and cabbage. She took a break to share a bit about where this all comes from and how the CCS cafeteria is a model of the Farm to School program that focuses on assuring our students have access to high quality, local produce at a reasonable cost.

One look at the October menu and you can see just how different CCS school lunches are from the days of recooked frozen pizza and boiled hot dogs.

Kale chips, rainbow slaw, minestrone soup and chicken fajitas - makes your mouth water just looking at the menu! We look forward to sharing a regular update from Elizabeth and our food service program with you and hope that you and your children have a chance to sample a few of her fine meals this month.
Thanks to the VT Farm Network and their great farmers for all of our fresh produce!!
