Food Service Update

Fall 2022

 

Welcome to Los Gatos Union School District Food Service Department, and welcome to school year 22/23! Amazing things are happening this year. Kerry Billner started with the district in September of 2021, so she is still working diligently on making exciting changes to the menu and production of food. Our menu is growing with more and more new items! We now utilize the Fisher kitchen as one of TWO production kitchens. The amazing staff continues to adjust to the growing popularity of different foods and expanding operations. This year we have a 6-week rotating lunch menu (and 4-week rotation breakfast menu) that features all items that were the most popular last school year.  With a rotating menu, we will be able to stay consistent with the nutritional values available online, as well as forecast grocery purchases and food waste. We will have staff stationed at Lexington Elementary School for the 22/23 school year. They will be providing food for Lexington as well as 2 new contract districts (3 sites); Lakeside Joint School District, and Loma Prieta Joint Union School District.  We are happy to expand our food service family to include more sites and as a result more hours for staff and increased opportunities to feed hungry students.
