A Little About Us

We serve 9 schools within the Klamath-Trinity Joint Unified School District. Our kitchen personnel receive ongoing training in food safety and preparation techniques.Our kitchen professionals, and substitutes, are certified in food safety by either the National Restaurant Association (ServeSafe) or The National Registry of Food Safety Professionals. Both certifications are nationally accredited.

We meet, or exceed, all of the nutrition standards for school food service, and we take great pride in actively looking for ways to improve our food quality, variety and nutrition. We seek to create a place where students can comfortably learn good eating habits.

We strive to make a difference through the quality of food prepared for the students' good health and nutrition. Feel free to write, call or e-mail if you have a question or comment about any of our cafeterias.
 

From the Manager

Your cafeteria team has been hard at work during the 2012-13 school year. Most significantly, we have begun implementing the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2012 (HHFKA). 2012-13 was is the first in the 10 year HHFKA Implementation timeline. I will post updates as we move forward, so that you can follow along as we continue to make substantial changes to our food service program.

Our work here is a part of First Lady Michelle Obama's national Let's Move campaign, which seeks to address our nation's growing problem of childhood obesity. Follow the link below to learn more and to get involved.   


Call, write or e-mail if you are interested in supporting our local wellness initiatives- I would love to hear from you.


Bon Appétit,
