Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act
Be Smart - Eat Breakfast
What we serve students at lunch changed on July
1, 2012. The majority of children and adults do
not eat the 5-9 servings of fruits & vegetables
nor eat enough whole-grain rich foods as
recommended in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for
Americans.
Over 6,300 students per day enjoyed breakfast
at school. Since eating breakfast enhances
academic success, we are excited that an
additional 400 students per day chose a school
breakfast.
A lunch includes five components:








1 cup vegetables (dark leafy greens,
red/orange, starchy, other vegetables &
legumes)
1 cup fruit
2-3 oz. equivalent grains with at least 51%
whole grain rich
2 oz. meat/meat alternative
8 oz. non-fat flavored or skim to 1%
unflavored milk
Calories: 750 -850
Less than 10% calories from saturated fat
1420 mg. sodium
Our menus included more variety than the usual
corn, iceberg lettuce and French fries. New dishes
added included: broccoli salad, hummus with raw
vegetables, salads made with spinach & romaine
lettuces, jicama, roasted red potatoes, fresh
sweet potatoes, and whole-grain rich pasta; rice
and bread replaced products made with enriched
wheat flour.
Many dishes are “made-from-scratch” which
helps to reduce the amount of fat and added
sodium.
The HHFKA required that students take ½ cup
fruit or vegetable along with two other items of
their choice. The downside of the policy is that
the cafeterias observed more fruit & vegetables
being thrown into the trash.
Cafeteria staff encouraged & promoted the
healthier options by offering fresh produce bars,
health promoting marketing activities, and
holding recipe tasting activities during lunch.
While we served over 2,600,000 lunches, our
lunch participation dropped about 2% compared
to the prior year.
A school breakfast includes four components:
2 oz. equivalent whole grain rich product, ½
cup fruit or non-starchy vegetable (may take
more if desired), 8 oz. milk and a 550-650
calorie range.
Many factors prevent students from eating
breakfast. Sites are encouraged to seek out
non-traditional serving areas (near bus stop or
mid-morning nutrition break) to increase
participation.
Allow at least 10 minutes to eat after the
student is served.
Salad Bar Promotion
United Fresh Produce Council, foundations and
corporations donated over 400 salad bars for
California schools.
KHSD received 34 beautiful salad bars from:


a salad bar offered at most cafeterias.

You’re an Essential Piece
Isn’t it a wonderful thing that we’re all different?
Each of us has strengths and skills to share.
And when we link our individual strengths together, we’re invincible.
“There are
few, if any,
jobs in which
ability alone is
sufficient.
Needed, also,
are loyalty,
sincerity,
enthusiasm
and team
play.” William
B. Given, Jr.
H
ave you ever thought to yourself; what does this have to do with me I only work a couple of hours?
Well let me tell you… everyone in school nutrition is important!
Our cafeterias are like a puzzle, without 1 piece, the picture is not complete.
No matter how many hours you work, or
how long you have worked in school nutrition, you are a very important piece.
CAN’T IMAGINE US WITHOUT YOU

MISSION STATEMENT
The KHSD Food Service Department recognizes that
student and adult participation in its meal program is
the reason for employment.
The mission of our department is to prepare and serve
nutritious meals of the highest quality by knowledgeable
employees who understand and demonstrate the
principles of safe food handling, quantity food
preparation, child nutrition, customer friendly service,
teamwork and follow Federal, State and District policies.
ETHICS
Ethics Defined: A principle of right or good conduct deals with the general
nature of good and bad and the moral obligations made by individuals in
the relationship with others.
Ethics in the workplace are for employees basically to do the right thing.
Ethics are very important to people whether in the workplace or out in the world.
Ethics are the basis for how we treat each other and if they are not followed, it would
be hard to function in society.
Ethics is a huge subject but remember one simple important key…
“ALWAYS DO WHAT’S RIGHT”

KHSD MARKETING PROGRAM 2012 / 2013
Cindy Groves, Field Coordinator
The theme for the marketing program for this past year
was “What’s Cooking In Your School Cafeteria”. We
held four promotions throughout the year.
During National School Lunch Week, students were
encouraged to read the nutritional analysis for breakfast and
lunch menus.
In November, we focused on Diabetes Awareness. Students were encouraged to rethink their drink, with
information on the amount of sugar in popular beverages versus water.
February featured Healthy Heart Month, and keeping your heart healthy by cutting back on fat and adding fruits
and vegetables to the diet along with daily exercise.
March was National School Breakfast Week. We had breakfast facts handouts available to students. They
encouraged students to jump start their day with a healthy breakfast.
The prizes for our promotions were; a whole fresh baked pepperoni pizza, a bottle of water every day for a
month, bowling tickets and insulated beverage cups with matching straws in site colors.
The Grand Prize winners were very happy to win a BIKE! The winners were West High’s Marcus Robinson and
Nueva’s Noemi Garcia.
Thank you
By: Kathlyn Lujan, R.D., Assistant Director
I want to thank all of you for your hospitality in welcoming me to the District and to Food Services.
You all perform very important jobs in our department and in the schools. I am truly grateful for all
your hard work. I know that the work is fast paced but the camaraderie we share with each other and
our commitment to the students makes it all the more enjoyable.
This year I want to concentrate on safety. It will be my mission to educate and explain safe work
practices. We will work together to make our cafeterias and work areas safer work environments.
I look forward to being here for the entire school year. There are so many fantastic things happening
with all of our Salad Bars and the increasing role of Wellness in our Cafeterias. My first 6 months on
the job were exciting and “mind boggling” sometimes but I truly enjoy working in Food Services and
with all of you. I have been around School Food Service most of my life and have very fond memories
and hope to have many more here at KHSD.
Sincerely,
Kathy

In all of our lives we have choices of where we want to go. It’s always exciting
to take a new road; new sites, smells and the air is filled with anticipation.
As we start another school year, a new year filled with new students, more
regulations and yes, many more changes, I hope that we all could look at it with
excitement! A new adventure and a new path that is bridged together with the
support of each and every one of us; the bridge for every student as they take
their journey through high school in hopes of reaching the other side.
We are all important, we are all needed. When one of us has weaknesses,
others have strengths. It’s us together that support ‘the Bridge to Success’ for
each and every student who achieves their journey across the bridge to
graduation.
THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO!

Employees who are assigned to less than 12 months per year do not work when school is not in session, with the exception of District declared “non‐student” days. 3. Employees who are assigned to less than 12 months are required to utilize vacation time to cover winter and spring breaks. The accrual of enough vacation time to cover breaks will normally take several years, therefore, new employees (less than three/four years) may not be able to save enough vacation time for these breaks to be paid for all hours required. 4. If additional time off is desired, other than vacation time needed for winter and spring break, a “Request For Time Off” form must be filled out and submitted to supervisor at least three (3) days prior to date requested.

Tips for Eating Healthy when
Eating Out
If main portions at a restaurant are larger than you want, try
one of these
strategies to keep from overeating:
Order an appetizer or side dish instead of an entrée.
Share a main dish with a friend.
If you can chill the extra food right away, take leftovers
home in a
“doggy bag.”
When your food is delivered, set aside or pack half of it to
go
immediately.
Roasted Carrots and Asparagus
1 pound baby carrots
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed, cut into 1-inch
pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Salt to taste
Preheat oven to 475 F. Place carrots and
asparagus in a large bowl. Toss with olive
oil. Add ground ginger, sesame seeds and
salt; mix well. Place vegetables on a baking
sheet and roast in oven for 15 minutes or
until vegetables are tender.
Serves 6
Nutritional information:
Low cal, great source of vitamin A and fiber
Resign from the “clean your plate club” – when you’ve eaten enough, leave the rest.
Move more:
Increase your activity levels by doing both continuous exercise and “lifestyle” exercise. Continuous
exercise, like walking, jogging, biking or yoga, is vital to keep you fit. “Lifestyle” exercise, like taking
the stairs instead of the elevator, walking to the store instead of driving, or doing yard work, will keep
you moving and active and will also help burn calories throughout the day.
PREVENTING BACK INJURIES
Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA)
considers back injuries as the nation’s #1 workplace safety issue.
●Five leading back injury risk factors
1. Poor posture
2. Poor physical condition
Extra weight
3. Improper body mechanics
4. Incorrect lifting
5. Jobs that require high energy
●Best ways to prevent back injuries:
1. Do not lift anything over the weight requirement for your job
Food Service Workers/Lead Food Service Workers
(male or female) is 37.5 pounds
2. Store heavy objects up off the floor – between the shoulders and
knees – “Safe Lifting Zone”
3. Use carts and dolly’s to move heavy objects
4. Reduce total weight of load by dividing into smaller loads
5. Get help if shape is too awkward or too heavy to lift and carry
6. Take the time to warm up muscles with simple stretches before
starting work
