REALMS will continue to offer a hot, healthy and tasty school lunch program (and breakfast as well!) in 2015-16. As we transition to a District Magment School we will be working with the Bend LaPine Nurition Services folks to put together a great lunch program.
Katrina Wiest and the rest of the folks at Bend LaPine have put together one of the strongest "Farm to School" and "Sea to School" programs in the state, and have an excellent focus on creating healthy and tasty entrees for kids while at the same time sourcing ingredients from locals farmers and growers right here in Central Oregon and from others around the state (ex. Painted Hills Beef, and many more).
Some things that will make the REALMS lunch program a little different from other Bend LaPine schools:
We will customize our menu offering 2 hot meal entrees/day plus 1 vegetarian entree per day
We will have a fresh fruit and salad bar available daily
REALMS will not serve any "convenience items" (ex. corn dogs, tater tots, or any other pre-made foods NOT cooked in the Bend High kitchen)
We willl continue to serve our food on real plates, with real silverware - no paper boats for us!
And of course, the NINJAS!!!
