Stearns Nutrition Equipment Grant
We appreciate the funds to purchase some very necessary and useful equipment, allowing us to be more efficient and sanitary in the preparation of students' food. The vegetable slicer tool came out of the box the first day and went right to work preparing tomatoes for hamburgers to be served that day. The storage shelves have provided stable and sanitary storage for the constantly changing inventory of a school cafeteria. As seen in the photo, the large coolers provided cool storage for classroom field trips, which allowed milk to be included in the sack lunches. The immersion blender was used in preparation of sauces and a variety of recipes throughout the school year.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Three of the tools purchased with these funds are at work on a regular basis in the school cafeteria. The coolers are appreciated by all staff to store and keep lunches cool for class field trips. The coolers having wheels allows the students to assist in getting them from kitchen to bus!
