Introducing Hydration Stations!

Posted by: JC Food on Monday, March 5th, 2012

A hydrated body is so very important to maintaining focus and attention during school.  We want to make sure that all of the students and teachers we serve are able to stay well hydrated everyday but we certainly don’t want to fill them up with the extra calories that come with sugar-sweetened beverages.  Therefore, we have been very excited to introduce “Hydration Stations” as a new part of our school food service programs!

By infusing, fresh and pureed fruit, as well as fragrant herbs, into filtered water we have successfully satisfied thirsts and excited palates at the same time!

We are truly lucky to be able to source so much delicious, fresh produce locally through our numerous farm partnerships.  This Fall Consalo Farms of Vineland, NJ has supplied us with some simply spectacular seasonal vegetables.  Thus far, have enjoyed everything from tomatoes, lettuces, and herbs at the beginning of the school year to more hard veggies like squash and potatoes as the temperature has dropped.

Just last week one of our incredibly talented school chef’s created a colorful raw slaw with sweet potatoes, beets and parsnips.

He simply julienned all of the veggies into thin matchstick sized pieces and marinated them over night in homemade French-style vinaigrette.  Adding a garnish of coarsely chopped parsley, this dish was a welcomed addition to the daily lunch salad bar.
