There have been some recent changes to Sangamon Valley this year. One of those changes includes our lunch. We used to not have a company that we got our lunch through, and now we have Aramark. They have given us more options to choose from, like our everyday pizza, fries, and chicken nuggets. We also get more than one option when it comes to the main dish. We have more than just the same kind of salad everyday, as well. Mr Field stated: “Before, we weren’t getting the bank for our buck.” Everyone seems to be very satisfied with our new lunch this year and we hope that it keeps getting better and better.
We also have a lunch director, Kelly Rice. She came from Taylorville and is enjoying Sangamon Valley so far, except for the heat. Kelly said that being a lunch director is new to her this year. We haven’t seen ale cart this year, but are hoping to soon. Last year, we had strawberry milk and Mr. Field loved it. He said that it was pretty darn good and he hasn’t seen it this year, but hopes to. Mr. Field said, “I’m going to ask Miss Rice if we can get some strawberry milk up in this joint.” Maybe we will see some strawberry milk shortly, especially for Mr. Field. Our hope is that everyone is enjoying the new lunch this year!
