On Wednesday September 7th, Mayor Menino and over 100 students, parents, teachers and other elected officials gathered for the official opening of the new Roger Clap Innovation School in South Boston. Attendees enjoyed a luncheon prepared and served by BPS Food and Nutrition Services staff and Whitson’s Culinary Group. The luncheon menu included a sampling of this year’s school lunch items such as baked Alaskan pollock, teriyaki chicken, three bean salad, locally grown butternut squash, broccoli, coleslaw and much more. Parents and students seemed excited and eager to give the new school food a try!
