Healthy Kid Healthy program Culinary Throw-down

The Crocker Farm School Nutrition Staff participated in the Healthy Kids Health Program Culinary Throw-down in Norwood Massachusetts on Wednesday May 23 competing against Chicopee and Waltham public schools. They prepared a great tasting Zayas Black Bean Salad on Organic microgreens. This side dish is named after the Modesta who created her special dressing. The microgreens are grown by Summit Academy Science class through their new growing business.  These organic greens can be found on the high school cafeteria menu both as ala carte and in the main lunch meal. We are proud to partner with Ms. Murphy and her students in brining organic locally grown produce into the school meals programs. 

Cynthia and Modesta did a great job representing the district. We were commended for the great work we are doing as well as the Five-star dining plate presentation, thanks to Cynthia’s tomato rose which was a big hit with the Secretary of Agriculture who can be seen taking picture of our plate. Congratulations to Waltham Public Schools for their winning Wicked Kale Salad.

Great Job Team you were awesome!
