What's for Lunch - Mon., 4/30

100% Beef Burger or Cheeseburger
Baked Sweet Potato “Fries”
Fresh Melon

You may have heard of the "pink slime" controversy or even signed the petition yourself. If not, there are significant concerns about what's in the "beef", if you will, that is being served in schools.  Our beef is a USDA commodity food and thus part of the controversy.  Our district is working very hard to come up with a solution - for next year - to insure that our students will  no longer be fed this product.  Meanwhile, although there is no salad bar today (it takes a couple days after the break to get it ready....), you could get the turkey wrap. It's a white flour wrap - Boarshead turkey.

You might also skip the fries. The sweet potato fries are processed frozen  fries we buy from McCains's, a big food service vendor. They contain: Sweet potatoes, vegetable oil (contains one or more of the following: canola oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, sunflower oil, corn oil), potato starch modified, rice flower, dextrin, sugar, leavening (sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bicarbonate), salt malt powder (malted barley, wheat flower, dextrose), natural flavor, dehydrated sweet potatoes, maltodextrin, molasses, spice and coloring, xanthan gum, corn starch-modified, triglycerides, annatto (color), sodium acid pyrophosphate added to preserve natural color. The label indicates they have 6g of fat and 170mg of sodium.

Another alternative is our salad bar as an entree.
