Family-Style Lunch

Recently Leicester Legends traded institutional trays for beautiful, new red and blue plates and bowls! Now Ms. K’s nutritious dishes are being served in style.  Plates help kids think about portion-control and help the school save water because more fit into our dishwasher at a time than the old trays.

This month we had our first family-style lunch with all grades! Children volunteered to set tables and placed large serving bowls of salad and platters of pizza on each table. The children passed these around instead of standing in line. It was a great success that we hope to continue at least once per month.

Ms. Grodin checked in with the kindergarteners to find out their thoughts about these changes. Deena said she “likes the red plates and they are special”. Channing thought “the stuff in the middle looked cool” and Jholai offered she “liked not eating on her lunchbox”. Keenan likes the “colorful plates” and Kayden summed it up with, “the whole school is awesome!”
