Parsnips, New Lunch Trays, and Local Soup!


A lot has been happening at RES, both in our cafeteria and with Farm to School. Last week every student, Pre-Kindergarten to 4th grade, had the chance to participate in Farm to School's monthly taste test. In January we tasted parsnips in the form of parsnip chips. After students tried the parsnip chips, they then had the opportunity to vote on how they felt about the taste. Here are the results from the last taste test.

Also, here is a recipe for oven-baked root vegetable chips. Bon appetit!


In June, 2014 Richmond Elementary School was awarded the HUSSC Bronze Medal Award. We have just received the award and were able to purchase new school lunch trays with the award money. Here are our new lunch trays in one of our school colors, purple. They really liven up the lunch room!


It may be February, it may be below zero outside, but we are eating farm fresh foods from our local farmers! Potatoes, beets, onions, celeriac, carrots and sweet corn! Pickled Beets and Corn Chowder are on the school menu! YUMMY!

These are just a few of RES's happy soup-slurping second graders.
