What's for Lunch - Mon., 4/4

Pita Pizza (Plain or w/Meatballs)
Celery Sticks w/Dipping Sauce
Chilled Pineapple Chunks

The pita pizza is made with  a HFCS-free, minimal ingredient pita from Kronos or Athena. It is not whole grain until they can find one that is tasty. The sauce is a Red Pack vitamin enhanced tomato sauce. The sodium at 140mg is much lower than we previously used.  Here are the ingredients: Tomato Concentrate (Water, Tomato Paste), Sugar, Soybean Oil, Potassium Chloride, Onion Powder, Salt, Citric Acid, Spice, Garlic Powder, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Black Pepper, Vitamin E (DL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), Natural Flavor, Vitamin A (Retinol Palmitate).  The cheese is a USDA commodity part skim mozzarella.  Ingredients are cultured pasteurized milk, salt, enzymes. The sodium is 240mg/oz - I think we use 2 ounces.  Meatballs are 100% ground chuck from the USDA.

Celery sticks come with organic ranch dressing as the dip. Follow link for ingredients.

The pineapple is canned,, government commodity fruit.

Plus, we now have the salad bar every day!

As an alternate entree, you can get a wrap and salad bar sides. Wraps have romaine lettuce and a white flour tortilla.  On Mondays and Wednesdays, the wrap is Boarshead Turkey.  The fruit salad and the peanut butter sandwich are also available daily.
