SAISD Food Extravaganza with students taste testing

Media Advisory

What:         SAISD’s Food Extravaganza -  students sample edibles under consideration for school menus
                  Districtwide in 2017-18

Who:          Edison Golden Bears official taste testers

When:       Oct. 20 (Thurs) – 1:45 p.m.

Where:      Edison High School, 701 Santa Monica

In a competition of a culinary kind, 150 Edison High School students will help decide new food items vying for consideration in SAISD campus cafeterias next school year.

Among the edibles under consideration are a meatless sausage calzone, meatless chili cheese empañada and a breakfast empañada. If they pass the taste test, these items will join last year’s winners-  barbecue teriyaki chicken, mandarin orange chicken and apple breakfast bar - on SAISD school menus.

Edison is among seven District high schools hosting Food Extravaganzas this fall. This is the second annual event providing students a say in the foods they are served at school, and is sponsored by SAISD's Child Nutrition Services Department.
