Chef/Scratch-Made School Meals Two INDY schools have restaurant quality meals
Fresh fruit yogurt parfaits, chicken Caesar salads and hummus made from scratch are all items you might find on the menu at a fancy café.
But some Indianapolis students see such fare on their lunch trays every day.
Fresh produce and made-from-scratch meals are part of a new school meal program currently in two Indianapolis charter schools that aims to boost student performance through food.
After hearing repeatedly from school leaders that they wished they could offer their students better food, Patachou Foundation officials realized that partnering with schools could translate into an impact on children’s well-being.
