School lunch lovin' and a new CSA

Posted By on Wed, Feb 27, 2013 at 5:49 PM

Take a second and try to remember what you ate in your school cafeterias growing up.

Sad Tater Tots, sickly fried fish sticks, grossly sweet fried-apple sticks, who-knows-what-meat corn dogs and the like?

Yup. Me too, before I started bringing a lunch more often.

Then take a look at this spring chef's menu for School District 11.

District 11
  • This is far from your lame, burnt mac 'n cheese.

Holy crap, right?

That's like ... real food.

Actually, it's just good food.

All I can say is that I wish it was around when I was a little monster.

That is all on that subject.

But one more tidbit for today: the welcome announcement of yet another area CSA program, this on the heels of Pikes Peak Urban Gardens' highly in-demand new salad-sprout shares (89 on the wait list at last count) and Grant Family Farms' truly sad situation.

The Arkansas Valley Organic Growers (AVOG) is launching a unique multi-farm, 25-week CSA for 2013.

Shares are limited to 250, so I wouldn't wait much longer than reading this to book if you're interested, because these will likely go quickly.

  • All the colors of the rainbow, grown sustainably and locally.
