CCSD School Lunch Recipe Challenge
The CCSD School Lunch Recipe Challenge was a new Boeing Center initiative in partnership with the Charleston County School District to get to students and staff involved in creating new, healthier, and kid- approved school lunch menu items. The goal of the contest was to improve the school lunch menu with items that are both nutritious and that students want to eat. The contest aimed to bring together food service staff, students, teachers and community members to develop creative, nutritious, tasty and kid-approved recipes that the CCSD school district can successfully incorporate into the school lunch menu cycle. Thanks to this contest, 5 new nutritious entrees will be incorporated into the 2012-2013 school lunch menu.
