Our brand new hot lunch program features the homemade cooking of Donna Glassman, an alumni parent, experienced caterer, and cooking teacher in our middle school Omanut program. Gev. Glassman is an excellent cook. The staff have been enjoying her meals at special events for years!
Gev. Glassman offers a menu that is more child-friendly than the previous program. Gev. Glassman’s meals feature all natural ingredients and, whenever possible, are locally sourced.
The program is kosher and under the supervision of Rabbi Steigmann, who has re-kashered the school’s kitchen.
Sign-up for meals is on a monthly basis just like prior years. But this year, the entire process is web-based – from the selection of which lunches you want for your child(ren) to payment by credit card through MJDS’ PayPal account. This process streamlines administration of the program and increases efficiency.
The lunch cost remains $4.50 and still includes a beverage, the portions are more generous than in the past. Also, for middle school students and staff, there is a daily option to purchase a one-trip salad bar for $3.25 instead of (but not in addition to) the hot lunch. Why only middle schoolers? We are concerned that the salad bar height and the complexity of the process makes it impractical for younger students without adult assistance; and we don’t have enough adults available to manage that process. We will, however, reevaluate this policy at a later date.
If you are interested in signing up for the entire year, please contact Christy Horn directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-967-8309.
The current month’s menu and sign-up form for the coming month can be found at www.mjds.org/menu (please note that the order form is not smart phone compatible; you can access it from a tablet as long as the screen is in landscape view and the form can also be seen on a PC). Sign-up forms are available on or around the 15th of the prior month and will be accessible for approximately one week.
If you have any questions about ingredients, allergies, etc., contact Gev. Glassman at email@example.com.
