The Story behind lunch...every day

Most of the attention CHS draws centers around the classrooms and learning  - as well it should. However, in order for students to learn and achieve, the body as well as the mind must be fed. This is where the CHS food services crew plays a critical role in the success of students.
What does it take to make sure a whole school has adequate and nutritious food to enable great learning? The process in the CHS kitchen begins as early as 6:30 a.m. Five kitchen and two office staff members work for several hours to prepare the required food for lunch beginning at 10:30. To serve nearly 300 meals a day, the CHS food service personnel do such things as make 18 dozen cookies a day, make lasagna from scratch, prepare 20 specialty salads or prepare 200 servings of mashed potatoes. The process ends a couple hours later: washing dishes and beginning preparation for the next days' meals.
