More than 100 people got a delicious taste of the food served for breakfast and lunch in Corvallis Schools during an inaugural “Taste of Menu” event sponsored March 13 by the Food Services Department.
Nearly a dozen food stations were set up throughout the Adams Elementary gym/cafeteria to allow visitors to sample such entrées as lasagna, tacos, pizza, sandwiches, corn dogs, pasta salads, spaghetti, burritos, and more – many of which are made from whole grains and fresh, local produce. The breakfast station featuring made-from-scratch cinnamon rolls, maple rolls, muffins and other pastries was especially popular.
“Taste of Menu was all about helping our parents and community understand better the kind of health meals and choices we offer kids in our district. We try hard to provide children with nutritious and affordable meals every day using a menu that offers a lot of variety and satisfies their taste buds,” Food Services director Sharon Gibson said.
The Corvallis Food Services program serves over 7,000 meals per day in all Corvallis schools, Philomath and Alsea schools, as well as for the Corvallis Boys & Girls Club, STARS, OSU Child Development Center, Grace Adult Daycare and other community programs.
