‘Not your momma’s kitchen’ – Ep. 09

In this episode of Learn in Burke: a Burke County Public Schools Podcast, we sit down with leadership from Chartwells, the schools system’s independent food service management company; Daniel Wall, child nutrition director; and Superintendent Dr. Larry Putnam. We open up and discuss how ‘cafeteria food’ has changed over the years and how it is not ‘your momma’s kitchen’, the goals we have for increasing student and staff participation and what the process is like in bringing in new menu items to students.

Pictured above (from left) are Jonelle Bobak, marketing and communications specialist; Daniel Wall, child nutrition director; Superintendent Dr. Larry Putnam; Chef Nick Bobotas; and Aaron Probst, senior director of dining services.
