Taste of DCSD serves up a new, high quality menu
HIGHLANDS RANCH - Douglas County School District Nutrition Services was the proud host of the third annual Taste of DCSD held at Mountain Vista High School on April 8. The event had seven vendors offering products ranging from pizza, burgers and a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, to breakfast foods and shelf-stable Hershey’s Milk.
“This was an opportunity for us to showcase the exciting new items we are offering in all levels of our schools and allow parents and students an opportunity to taste these new foods,” said Nutrition Services Manager of Operations Jennifer Pfeifer.
Chef Doug’s food lines, DCSD Nutrition Services’ in-house provider, was also on site with three booths showcasing their burrito bar, Asian bar and the FroZone which features low-fat frozen yogurt and real fruit smoothies.
“Three years ago we wanted to share with our customers the great things we were doing in Nutrition Services and this is a great way to get the word out and be transparent, “ added Direct of Nutrition Services Brent Craig.
Close to 700 parents and students attended the event. Many participants took advantage of the opportunity to provide direct feedback to Nutrition Services staff members.
Craig added that each vendors paid an entrance fee and supplied their own food. This more than covered the cost of the marketing material, labor and general expenses for the event.
