Kitchen Happenings...


We are happy to announce that we received  several grants again this school year.
We will again be receiving funds from Action for Healthy Kids. Grants will aid in our breakfast program, as well as our physical education program. In addition, we are glad to again be able to serve our students a fresh fruit or vegetable snack daily through the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.
This all will promote a healthy lifestyle, where full stomachs lead to attentive learners.
We encourage all students to participate in these exciting initiatives!

Here's a photo of a school-wide taste test breakfast from our Walk/Bike to School Day, funded by our Fuel Up to Play 60! grant.

We would love for you to join the initiative!

 Meet Your Food Service Staff:

Lindsay Krage, School Nutrition Leader

I have worked at Riverway Learning Community as the Food Service Manager since 2012. My passion for food stems from a loving line of Mid-western cooks, specifically my mother. Growing up with home-cooked meals and balanced nutrition has shown me the importance of the food we put into our bodies.
I am proud to work in a from-scratch facility, where my days can be spent with wholesome ingredients. It is my hope to have an active participation in your students learning - as research shows balanced nutrition leads to better learning.

Meet our wonderful support staff:
Mary Jane Bigelbach 

Mary Jane started working in the kitchen during the 2014-15 school year.  She helps to prep meals, she serves lunch, and she keeps the kitchen in tip-top shape.

Orion Carlson

Orion joined our kitchen team in January of 2016 and has been a great addition.  He continues to work in the dish room and is always ready to take on new rolls, including building maintenance in 2017-2018.
