Newer Lunch Tray readers may not know that I also write (with less frequency) a second blog called “The Spork Report,” devoted exclusively to school food here in my own district, Houston ISD. The blog’s entries are cross-posted on the Houston Chronicle‘s chron.com site and are shared here on TLT as well (preceded by “Spork Report” in the title).
Today I wanted to share some good news from our district – twenty-one new “fruit and veggie carts” headed our way!
Of course, we have about 300 schools, so we have a long way to go before all Houston kids have access to this fresh produce. In addition, the carts are funded by outside donations which may not be a sustainable model throughout the district or one that’s easily replicable elsewhere.
But hey, who am I took look new salad bars in the mouth . . . er, sneeze guard? :-)
