Linda Stoll, executive director of foodservice at 85,000-student Jeffco Public Schools in Golden, Colo., admires Oprah, wishes people appreciated her singing and loves a good burrito and margarita.
It’s different every single day.
Dealing with all the rules and regulations. It sometimes feels like they get in the way of what common sense says is best for kids.
We solved the competitive foods issue. We have taken over all student stores and worked out profit sharing.
During focus groups about 70% of the kids asked for sushi, which was surprising.
Lying on a beach. Or be an interior designer.
Singing. I sing all the time, but no one appreciates me.
Spiders. Or if I realized I had done something to cause harm to someone else.
Oprah. She’s had a big impact on a lot of people.
Mexican food—a bean burrito with a good margarita.
Barbecue potato chips.
Milk; I’m a milk freak.
Self-serve salad bars. I think you can offer fresh fruits and veggies without worrying about safety.
When we were kids, we visited our relatives and would go to gourmet grocery stores and get weird things like chocolate covered ants.
That was then; this is now.
