“We have on our room service menu a signature roast beef sandwich on a housemade rosemary bread with Boursin cheese and a Northwest huckleberry-red onion marmalade, lettuce and tomato,” says Executive Chef Brian Seto. “The dish originated because we wanted to use a Northwest product—huckleberries—that wasn’t used that much in healthcare. Our huckleberries come mainly from Washington state. We also feature fresh salmon, toasted hazelnuts and Oregon ground beef patties on our patient menus. To cross-utilize the huckleberries we also make a heart-healthy vinaigrette.”

Ingredients

4 oz. wheat bread
¼ oz. Boursin cheese
1 leaf green leaf lettuce
2 slices tomato
3 oz. sliced roast beef
1 tbsp. Huckleberry and Red Onion Marmalade (recipe follows)

cafeteria

Three years ago, Colonial School District in New Castle, Del., started a pilot supper program at its high school. The goal: To make sure the district’s students, 57% of whom are on free or reduced-priced meals, would not be hungry when school is done for the day.

Since its inception, the program has expanded to 12 schools and now provides afterschool meals to children participating in YMCA activities. And it's just one of many such programs popping up in districts throughout the country, as operators add supper to the list of daily meals they provide for students.

hydroponics

We put our hydroponic gardens in a spot where students can watch them grow, but at the same time it’s safe from being tampered with. At one of our elementary schools, the gardens are in the kitchen, but there’s a window where students can look in as they walk down the hallway. Some even stop to count how many cucumbers they see.

food snap

We started a 50-member vegan team in response to students expressing the need for more vegan options. Between our monthly meetings, students are asked to take photos of foods they eat in and out of the dining halls to give us a true picture of the kinds of things they like and the kinds of foods that cause disappointment. This exercise has sparked a lot of conversation and given us more insight into what we could do better.
