To the editor: Jr. Iron Chef teams update; cafeteria gets pay online system

Both of Green Mountain High School’s Jr. Iron Chef Vt. teams have been working hard to create and perfect their recipes to be submitted for approval by Feb. 15 to enter the March 19 competition.

Letters to the editor logoA big thank you to the coaches for giving the teams so much of their time and support. I will keep everyone posted on our progress.

Our all new, pay on-line system will be going live this month. This system will allow parents to access their children’s lunch account anytime from home. It also allows parents to make payments on their children’s account on-line. We will be mailing out more information this month.

I am also looking into establishing a new website for food services. This site will offer our menus, nutritional information and news of our Farm to School Program such as when we have our Harvest of the Month Taste Tests. It will be a great place to visit to see what we are doing here in the kitchen.

We just passed our 100th day of classes, the point where I try to change up the menu a bit and add new items. By this time of year, the kids are getting bored with some items. We just introduced our breakfast pizza made with whole grain crust, low-fat mozzarella and whole eggs. The kids love it.

Our wraps at lunch are going very well. We offer a pulled pork wrap that the kids go crazy for. I roast off fresh pork for up to eight hours then add a BBQ sauce. We try to scratch cook whenever we can. We are still serving local ground beef.

Join us the first Wednesday of each month for our senior citizens luncheon at noon. We have a great time seeing all our friends each month.Call me anytime with any questions or concerns.
