Joe Golden, Sarah Ashukian and Stephanie Manchester had asked a few of our sites to participate in the National CACFP Week by having classrooms create collages to show different foods we offer for different meals. Our South Amboy and Neptune sites had the children help cut out pictures of different foods of each component of the designated meal they were assigned and created a collage to represent that meal. As the Food Coordinators, we do our best to work alongside our Nutritionist Sarah (R.D) to create fun and tasty menus. It is a rewarding feel to know our children are receiving 60% of their daily nutritional needs from us. Sometimes we don't know if our children are going home to food and we strive to ensure we do our best with what we are handed while making our menus. We are excited for parents and other staff to walk past these collages to see the many food options out there and maybe even find one they have never tried and try it at home themselves.
