Screen-Free Week
I hope everyone enjoyed Screen-Free Week 2017. I have to admit, I wasn't looking forward to it this year. On my way home from work, last Monday, I could feel myself pouting about the thought of no screen time. As usual Screen-Free Week was a great experience.  I spent more time: reading, talking with my wife, working out & working in the yard. Last year Screen-Free Week sparked the start of more activities & less screen time. This year has renewed my freedom again.

If you did not get a chance to participate, I would encourage you to pick a week and make it screen-free. It is definitely a positive experience.

 - Jerry


I want to personally invite you and your children to participate in National Screen-Free Week. I've done this in the past and have really enjoyed the experience! 

You can keep this as simple or elaborate as works for you. Simply invite the kids to participate or work with pledge cards, activity logs & certificates of achievement. Here's a link:  Most of all have a great time and enjoy your freedom!

Pulled Pork Sandwich Name Contest Winners

We have two new menu items coming in February. The items are a hickory smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich & a Soft Taco lightly seasoned with Sriracha. To name the new items we had a contest. Originally we planned on naming just the pulled pork sandwich, more on that later.

   On Friday, January 20th, the kids were able to try the new items. There were a      lot of positive comments like, “this is really good!”

Emily Overby & Rylee Torres came up with the winning 
name of “The Piggy Pull.” Ellen Kim Cho, the Lewis County 
Health Educator, helped put on the contest and donated 
cool green water bottles for prizes.  Winners also received 
a mini sneaker key chain from the child nutrition department.                

We were not planning on naming the new Soft Sriracha Taco, but Cameron Riley entered an irresistibly great name. So the new soft taco will be known as the “Porkerito Burrito.”  When asked how he came up with the name, he said, “It just popped into my head.”

Monday, February 6th, will be the debut of the “Piggy Pull” Sandwich, served with Stealth Fries, Baked Beans and Cole Slaw.

The first day of the “Porkerito Burrito” is Thursday, February 9th.  The “Porkerito Burrito” will be served with Refried Beans & Buttered Sweet Corn.

Thank you to all who participated!

School Breakfast

Mornings can be really crazy…the alarm doesn’t go off…the kids don’t want to get up…there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes…or they’re just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you.

Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.

Breakfast at school is affordable, too. If you qualify for free and reduced price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork. You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else.

Help your child start the day right with school breakfast!
