Take Your Parent to Lunch Day Thank you so much for attending the lunch with your children/grandchildren yesterday! We hope you enjoyed the samples and recognized the hard work of the families and girl scout troops who took care of the garden all summer long, for a week at a time, so that we could bring these samples to you (and enjoy a glimpse at what your child does at lunch (other than eat!)) I want to thank all the parents who "signed up" as well as stepped in as needed to hand out and collect sample trays. It was a tremendous help! As with all well-attended, well-worth-your-time events, I heard the parking was a bit of a nightmare :) To help with that next year, we will be splitting this event into a couple days. I am sorry to those of you with multiple children who may need to come two different days, but we will give serious consideration to minimizing that prior to scheduling the event next year. I want to acknowledge and thank the food prep staff, the lunch staff who monitor the kids and cover the clean-up end for taking such great care of our kids, even though we may not realize that on a daily basis. Two representatives from the Elmbrook Nutrition Department, Brittany Heaney and her intern, took care of recipe creation, portioning, roasting and steaming lots of the foods you enjoyed! Dr. Siegenthaler, Julie Johnson, Adam Levandowski and Harvey Evans also played integral roles in making this event a success! Again, thank you for attending and making your kids' days!
