Being able to give people healthy options and feel satisfied is always something I strive to do. Together with Paul Raso of the Education Involved Advocacy Group we have created FoodEd. lunches. It is an experiential learning co-op, giving students from James Cardinal Mc Guigan the opportunity to help run a catering business offering teachers at the high school nutritious lunch bowls. Each week there is a new theme where teachers are able to pick their healthy ingredients creating salads that are not only appetizing but healthy as well.
We run out of an industrial kitchen and deliver the lunches two days a week, the other days we are planning menus, creating order forms, marketing and shopping. No one said that running a catering business is easy but when you are learning and having fun along the way it is the best thing. Day by day we are expanding to the schools in the surrounding area and are looking forward to keeping our teachers well nourished.
Here is one of the lunches we prepared for our Asian inspired week
These are the the boxed lunches that we put together made to order and then delivered just in time for lunch. As you can see they are all different depending on the teachers choices. The dressings are all made in house, tahini lemon, balsamic honey, asian sesame, peanut spice sauce, cilantro lime to name a few and correspond to the theme of the week. We have chicken as an option but we have made sure that it is hormone and antibiotic free, grass fed and locally sourced, brought to us by Brothers Butcher.
