Students at Winfield High School now have the opportunity to make the lunch menu their own with the new Student Choice program.
Using new technology, Student Choice gives middle- and high-school students the opportunity to taste and vote on a variety of new restaurant-inspired stations that will be introduced in the cafeteria the following week.
WHS is one of 150 schools across the country introducing Chartwells K12’s Student Choice program this fall.
“We know today’s students are looking for a wider variety of foods and more global flavors on their lunch menus,” said John Dohrman, food service director at Winfield High School/Chartwells K12. “From Thai pineapple fried rice to Nashville hot chicken sandwich, our new Student Choice program is bringing the latest food trends straight to students and letting them decide how to expand their lunch menu. Winfield High School students can be proud that they are among the first schools in the country to experience this innovative program.”
WHS chefs will cook up recipes for students to sample from various food station options. Students will then vote on their favorite and the winning concept will then be served in the café every day.
Chartwells K12 professional chefs and registered dietitians will cook, serve and share menu information with students as part of the program. Student ambassadors will help to promote voting and encourage every student to “voice their choice” on the new food to be served in the café.
