We just had our annual "turkey dinner day" on Thursday, November 16. Our kitchen staff worked for days to prepare the local red bliss mashed potatoes (from scratch!), stuffing, gravy, and the turkey roast. Each school had an apple bake dessert, also from scratch. Here are some of the comments we received:
"I cannot tell you enough how much our kids went crazy over the turkey meal."
"Seriously, I have been in the system for 30 years and this was the best turkey meal and I have had!
I am so proud of our amazing ARPS Food Service staff for all of their hard work. The pride that everyone takes in preparing the meals each day, in all 5 of our kitchens, is truly inspiring to me. I think this picture sums up what I think of our great kitchen staff.
Shout to each of you this week at:

We have one more holiday meal coming up in December. Be sure to try it out if you missed this first one. I can attest to how delicious and nourishing it is! Onward. -RH
