The Fairfield Public School system and the PTA’s food advocacy group, Fuel for Learning Partnership (FFLP), are revamping the school-lunch program to offer healthy and fresh food—such as Stonyfield Organic yogurt, more food cooked from scratch in the cafeteria kitchens, and showcasing one new vegetable every month. FFLP also recently hosted its Food Day Iron Chef event, where three local chefs were tasked with creating a meal kids would love. The event, held at Warde High School, was attended by more than 350 students and parents.
The victor? Shawn Russell of Cinch Gourmet Meal Market (cinchfood.com). The Cinch Slider was the clear winner with over 200 votes and was offered on the lunch menu last December.
