Green Mountain 2018 Winter Lunch News

posted Jan 16, 2018, 4:52 AM by Anna Sanford GM STA

We are pleased to announce the introduction of our new Digital Menu program. The name is Nutrislice. This is an all new high tech program that allows everyone to download the free APP to access our menus and for that matter most breakfast and lunch menus in our District.  It can be downloaded to any device, phone, laptop, ipad and so on.   The best part is when you click on any given menu item any and all nutritional information is shown.  This is a great tool for children with medical issues that require this valuable information. With this new system anyone can access our menus anytime from anywhere.  Just go to the website at trsu.nutrislice.com.

Just a reminder we have a breakfast and lunch payment system.  We do not allow charging of any meals.  We do although offer a few ways to access your child’s account and make payment on the account.  First you can create an account on line by going to mymealtime.com and set up your profile.  You will need the account number that I can send you via e-mail upon request.  This will enable you to access your child’s account anytime to observe when they are eating and make payments on the account.  You can also send in a check to the school or cash anytime and we can place it on the account.  I encourage everyone to apply for free or reduced meals anytime during the school year.  You may feel you do not qualify, but the amount a family can earn changes every year so you may qualify and take advantage of a great program.  The forms are even available on the School’s web site.

Our three Jr. Iron Chef teams have been working very hard on perfecting their recipes.  The competition is   March 17th in Essex Jct at the Fair Grounds.  Time is going fast but as far as I can see all three teams have a recipe and are working hard to perfect it. I have sampled a couple of the recipes in their early stages and they are great.  We are hoping being held on St. Patty’s day it will bring us luck.

We are purchasing many local foods here at Green Mt. for our Farm to School Program.  I have purchased 100s of pounds of local beef we use in our meat sauces and any recipe that calls for ground beef.  It by the way is very high quality beef.  As we do at Chester/Andover we also purchase onions, apples, and potatoes, and greens when available.

The first Wednesday of every month we offer our senior citizen luncheon.  We serve at noon.  Please feel free to stop by for a great meal and a great  time with the kids. Feel free to contact me anytime with any questions concerning account balances, or menus,

Important Reminder about Lunch Forms!

posted Sep 20, 2017, 8:02 AM by Anna Sanford GM STA

If your child was a recipient of free or reduced lunch last year that does not mean he/she is an automatic beneficiary this year.  You MUST return the form to the main office by October 17th to avoid a change in status. If you do not return the form your child will be charged full pay starting on October 18th. Our school funding relies heavily on these forms - we sincerely appreciate your help and cooperation.

Food Service News - Fall 2017

posted Aug 21, 2017, 7:27 AM by Anna Sanford GM STA

I would like to welcome everyone back for another school year of healthy eating.  I would also like to welcome all new staff and students here for the first time.  My staff and I are looking forward to seeing everyone in the cafeteria for breakfast and lunch.  Our Sous Chef is Beth Connor; Beth has spent all summer with us working with the Summer Meals Programs.  Karla Hunsdon is also returning as our sandwich and cashier person.  Steve Pippin is back in the dish room doing his thing. Steve also was a huge part of our Summer Meals Program. I am very lucky to have such a great staff that enjoys their work and the kids.

We are once again as in past years involved in a great Farm to School Program.  We not only purchase from Windham Farm and Food, we also purchase from Black River Meats, and Reinhart Foods and local farmer’s market right here in Chester.  As budget allows I plan on purchasing all local beef this school year.  All three of the vendors I mentioned are great sources of local products from local farmers.  Items like Vermont Bread, Cabot cheese, Hood Milk, local ground beef.  We even purchase French bread here in town from Baba Louis Bakery to use for our garlic bread on spaghetti day.

Our award winning Jr. Iron Chef Vermont teams are waiting in the wings to begin another year in the kitchen preparing what will hopefully turn out to be a winning recipe.  Last year is a tough act to follow with two wins.  We once again this year will be entering three teams in the competition.


As we do every year I encourage all families to apply for free or reduced meal benefits.  Even if you feel you may not qualify please apply, you may be surprised.  You need to know if you qualify for free meals.  If you qualify benefits include breakfast and lunch.  Right now 1 in every 7 Vermont children are living in households that experience food insecurity.  School meals programs are the best tools we have to protect children in our communities from hunger and malnutrition.  The Title 1 funding your school receives is based on the number of students who are enrolled in our free and reduced program.  Title 1 funding pays for many of the academic programs all students use.

We offer a great lunch account system for your children.  Each child has an account and account number we have them punch in at lunch time.  Parents can also access their children’s account on line by going to mymealtime.com and set up a profile.  Payments can be made on line also.  We encourage you to maintain a positive balance in the account.  We do not allow any charging of meals.  For more information please contact me anytime at 802-952-9133 or jack.carroll@trsu.org.

Once again this year the first Wednesday of each month we have our senior citizen lunch at noon. Our first lunch will be Sept. 6.  Please join us for a great lunch and conversation with friends and the best part see the kids.

Sincerely,

Jack Carroll,  Food Services
