Self-Serve Salad Bar for Central K-12 Students
Students and Parents: There is a self-serve salad bar available with school lunch for K-12 students. Each day this salad bar will have at least one vegetable per subgroup. The subgroups include a red & orange group, a dark green group, a bean & pean group, a starch group, and a miscellaneous group. We encourage all students to use the salad bar. School age children need 4 to 5 cups of fruits and vegetables per day. There is also a cooler full of ham, turkey, ham & turkey, egg salad, and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, as well as turkey and ham chef salads. This cooler is available as an alternative meal option for junior high students and as an alternative or extra purchase ($1.50 per item) for high school students. Contact Jessie Kuehl, Food Service Director, if you have question.
