Favorite Chef Recipies from Crispin’s Kitchen

The school’s mission of providing affordable meals, cooked from scratch with the freshest ingredients, is made possible by a dedicated staff and generous volunteers. We are most grateful to those who have contributed to the success of the program. Hot Lunch service is available on Mondays through Fridays throughout the year, with one Monday per month designated for Emerald City Hot Dogs and/or Pizza Fundraiser lunch. All lunches for the month are ordered through the school’s hot lunch portal.  The program will continue to work with locally owned Charlie’s Produce to prepare meals with the best fresh fruits and vegetables. Milk and water are available on the lunch menu (students with sack lunches can order milk or water too).
