    Promoting School Breakfast with the Cleveland Browns at East Clark
    Cleveland Browns player T.J. Carrie along with Chomps, the Cleveland Browns mascot, visited East Clark Elementary School to promote school breakfast! During their assembly, they also promoted Fuel Up to Play 60, a nutritional wellness program. The show included a dance competition and an energizing breakfast race. The students were excited to participate and ask T.J. various questions, including "What is your favorite breakfast?" and "What sports did you play when you were little?" After the show concluded, a smaller group of students were invited to the reception room where they ate breakfast with T.J., took photos and signed a breakfast pledge. Check out photos from the event below!

    Sparkling ICE Sampling at James Ford Rhodes and Ginn Academy   
    The Sparkling ICE team headed out James Ford Rhodes and Ginn Academy to sample two flavors of their carbonated beverage. Students were offered both Strawberry Kiwi and Black Cherry, and were encouraged to toss their cups in the "Like" or "Dislike" bins. At the end of each sample session, the "Like"bin was almost filled to the brim! As a result, we may soon be offering Sparkling ICE as an a la carte option in our high schools. Take a look at pictures from the event below!

    Flatbread Taste Test at James Ford Rhodes High School   
    Central Office staff headed out to James Ford Rhodes High School to put a potential new menu item to the test. Students were offered two slices of Gilardi Flatbread, one flavor was Cheesy Garlic Parmesan and the other was BBQ Chicken. The result? An overwhelming thumbs-up for both flavors!
    Taste tests with our scholars are the best way for us to receive direct and honest feedback on the products we offer to them. We will use this feedback as we continue to update our menus with items every student will enjoy!
