What's on the menu at Greenville County Schools

Food service team preps for new school year

GREENVILLE CO., SC (WSPA) - The Food and Nutrition Service team for Greenville County Schools has been busy practicing cooking skills and getting together new international and trendy dishes for lunch menus.

Over the next couple of weeks, Food and Nutrition Service employees are attending a culinary workshop to refresh cooking skills like cooking vegetables, knife handling and making dishes from scratch.

There will be some new trendy items on the lunch menu this year like Japanese gyoza, empanadas, tamales, Bahn Mi sandwiches and Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. There will also be macaroni bars, taco bars and ramen bars to let students customize their meals.

Joe Urban, Director of Greenville County Schools Food and Nutrition Service, says he worked with his team to create recipes that reflect what students have asked for. "This year's menus are going to focus on different international flavors," he said. "They're going to focus on a lot of build your own bars whether its our taco bar where kids will be able to build their own tacos using certified angus beef, wild caught alaskan salmon or whole muscle chicken products."

Last year, the school district was the first in the nation to be licensed to serve Certified Angus Beef, an ingredient in many of the items on the menu. 

Lunch is $2.50 cents for students and $3.80 for adults. Greenville County Schools start the new year August 20th.
