Food for Thought Fort Worth First Taste Testing
Students from Fort Worth ISD’s DeZavala Elementary School took part in the very first Food for Thought Fort Worth Taste Testing Club on Monday, November 12. Food prepared by Chef Lisa Wright was presented to students in the school’s library.
Students tasted foods that will be on the new Food for Thought Fort Worth school lunch menu beginning early next year. Student tasters acted as food critics and gave immediate feedback to Chef Lisa and other Food for Thought Fort Worth volunteers on the new menu items. Customer feedback will be collected and recipes and/or menu items will be adjusted accordingly.
De Zavala Elementary School Principal Hector Martinez priased the 18 De Zavala students as well as volunteers from Food for Thought Fort Worth for their work and dedication to the project. The Food for Thought program is a partnership between the City of Fort Worth and Fort Worth ISD. The pilot program will launch at De Zavala Elementary this school year. Nutrition education for students and parents will be ongoing throughout the pilot. A new school menu will be introduced in January, 2013. Key measurements before, during and after the pilot will be used to judge program effectiveness.
