Students in South’s cafeteria sampled brussel sprouts and blood oranges today as part of a program called Coordinated School Health. Based through Bloomington Hospital, the program allows kids to sample healthy foods, and depending on the feedback, aims to introduce those foods into the cafeterias the following year. Manager Lisa Greathouse said the main goal is to “bring more diversity to the lunch lines.” According to South Cafeteria Manager Kathy Chitwood, the student response to the foods offered today was largely positive, and the cafeteria intends to offer both new foods in the main food line next year.
