MONTGOMERY: School lunch menu to include chef’s display station


By Lea Kahn, Staff Writer
Lunch is going to be a little more interesting at Montgomery Upper Middle School and Montgomery High School next year., That’s because in addition to the traditional lunch menu, a special chef’s display station will be set up twice a month at the upper middle school and twice a month at the high school. There will also be new made-to-order salad bars., Those additions to the menu are included in the renewal contract between the Montgomery Township Board of Education and Compass Group USA Inc., through its Chartwells Division. The company will again serve as the school district’s food services management company., At the new chef’s table, the chef will cook entrees at the display station in the serving area in front of the students. The cost is $3.50 to $5.25. The standard entree combo lunch costs $2.90, although it may cost more depending on the options that a student may choose from the menu., The food service also will offer assorted appetizers that cost $2.75 to $5.25 The appetizers include broccoli bites, Buffalo wings, boneless Buffalo wings, cheddar poppers, potato skins, fried calamari and chili fries., The made-to-order salads will cost $3.25 and $4.95. A packaged tossed garden salad is $3., The school board also approved prices for lunch for the 2017-18 school year. The standard lunch at Montgomery Upper Middle School and Montgomery High School is unchanged at $2.90., But lunch at the Village Elementary School, the Orchard Hill Elementary School and the Lower Middle School will cost $2.45 – a 10-cent increase over the current price of $2.35., Students whose family’s income qualifies them for reduced costs for lunch will still pay 40 cents. There is no change in the lunch cost for those students.
