Project Yum: Improving school lunch one bite at a time

In May of last year, we tested new recipes at Hallinan Elementary. The new recipes reflect more house-made items, more items sensitive to dietary restrictions, and more organic choices. The test program was a success, and many of those recipes will be served district-wide this year. Lunches come with salad bar featuring organic spring mix, organic baby carrots and organic whole apples from Hood River Organics and milk. Pictured is our new rice and bean dish - a daily choice that is made with organic rice and beans. Yum!
