Congratulations to McClernand Elementary School (Springfield, IL) for winning our Meal of the Month contest for December!
McClernand Elementary and other grade schools within Springfield Public School District 186 celebrated the holidays a few days early with a special meal. Students could choose from a baked chicken drumstick or Salisbury steak (not pictured) for the entree.
The Salisbury steak is homemade using commodity raw ground beef while the chicken drumstick is a commodity item from Tyson. Katie Dority, RD, LDN, who made the submission, said "this was the first time we served the chicken drumstick so it was a special treat for the kids. [They] also love Ms. Sharon and Ms. Fulisa's Salisbury steak so it was a hard decision, but the chicken was a hit!"
Thank you for your dedication to child nutrition and we hope you enjoy your prize!
