Taco Twist, Flying Saucers: Students Create Lunch Menus

Flying saucers, anyone? CSD Student Recipe Contest submissions are in, and the winning delectables are sure to delight in CSD lunchrooms this month.

CSD Recipe Contest, open to students as part of National Nutrition Month, aimed to involved students more in the planning of school meals. The CSD Recipe committee of kitchen managers and Nutrition Services leaders narrowed the list for a final round of taste-testing. From there, three were named winners. Winning recipes will be served for school lunch for peers, teachers and principals to enjoy.
Secondary and Elementary winners’ recipes will be added to the school lunch menu next school year.

The winners are:

Secondary: Madison Gahan, eighth grade, Midvale Middle School, “Stir-Fry Chicken and Vegetable Lo Mein.” Her fare will be served at all CSD secondary schools Friday, April 24.
Elementary: Marcus and Carter Hill, twin brothers who are second-graders at East Midvale Elementary, “Marcus and Carter’s Taco Twist Pasta.” The dish will be served at all CSD elementary schools Thursday, April 23.
Most Creative: Sierra Burden, second grade, Butler Elementary, Flying Sierra Skye Saucers. This delicious dish of bologna, mashed potatoes and melted cheddar cheese will make a one-time-only, exclusive appearance at Butler Elementary School at lunchtime on Wednesday, April 22.

Our compliments to the 40 young chefs who submitted their recipes in our debut contest. Bon appetit!
