Students in Robert Piascik’s Health Class at Hannibal High School were recently given the opportunity to taste test possible menu items for the 2014-15 school year.
New standards for school lunches require that foods be rich in whole grains.
At present, at least one-half of the grains offered must be whole grain.
Currently, Hannibal meets this criterion by serving 90 percent whole grain foods. By July 2014, all grains must be whole grains.
Students sampled cheese calzones, stuffed crust pizza, Mexican pizza, stuffed breadsticks and pizza quesadillas.
Food Service Coordinator Debbie Richardson distributed a survey to students that asked whether or not they wanted these items to appear on next year’s menus.
Block 2 study hall students also participated.
