Who doesn't love a hearty breakfast or lunch -- especially one you don't have to prepare yourself? The unsung heroes of Perry Wellness Center are surely the kitchen staff and peer leaders, who are required to serve breakfast and lunch menus each day that are both tasty and healthy.
Cafeteria workers must rely on a changing seasonal array of menu items. As the bright summer produce becomes the earthier foods of fall, kitchen workers incorporate these fresh foods into daily meals, along with fresh-frozen staples such as peas or beans. Food is served in keeping with the principles of farm to table.
A wellness program such as PWC also places a premium on a healthy and nutritious food environment. We are happy to report that our latest kitchen health department rating was 100/A. Notes Stuart Perry, “We are proud of our kitchen staff and the many top ratings they have obtained in recent inspections.”
Regardless of the time of year, breakfast plates are a favorite at Perry Wellness Center. In the photo above, kitchen staff leader Shaneshia Edge displays a plate of grits, sausage, eggs, and juice.
