Once a month with no additional charge, Samueli Academy students can choose to have the healthy Asian cuisine, Pick Up Stix. Pick Up Stix started to be served this 2015-2016 school year.
The lunch program through which we get the monthly treat is called Better 4 You Meals. Better 4 You Meals lookout for the best farming and they provide students with a high quality, healthy, and enjoyable lunch. They cohere to the federal National School Lunch Program guidelines and help schools prepare for their state revisions and requirements: “I made sure with the vender that the food met the nutrition guidelines, I try to get the best food for [the students],” said Mrs. Natalia.
When Pick Up Stix is served the lunch line gets hectic. Students that don't usually get lunch on regular days decide to try something that is outside of the regular school lunch.
“275 kids get lunch on Pick Up Stix day and I run out,” said Ms. Natalia.
Students appreciate the variety offered with this option. It gives them something to look forward throughout their day. “I like when we get Pick Up Stix because I enjoy eating the rice,” said Amy Enciso, a freshmen.
Some students enjoy Pick Up Stix but they think it could be better. “It is a good idea for food, it is really good, but the rice is hard,” said Carlos Gomez, a sophomore.
Pick up Stix will not be the only option for much longer, Ms. Natalia is also trying to acquire Pizza Hut for us the student. So, once a month bring your appetite Firewolves!
