National School Lunch Week: Latino Food On The Menu to Celebrate Diversity/Globalization
As part of the UCPS Global Schools initiative and National School Lunch Week, the Porter Ridge Middle School cafeteria staff planned a Latino theme to make todayâ€™s lunch menu special. The students were all smiles as they selected Chicken Enchiladas, Nachos and other favorites. To entice students to eat a healthy, balanced meal Mrs. Watts will be entering all studentsâ€™ names into a drawing if they purchase lunch this week. On Friday, three names will be selected and winners announced for special prizes. Novemberâ€™s theme will be Chinese. Students will have the opportunity to use chopsticks along with the foods that will be served and there will be fortune cookies for desert.
