Aramark has teamed up with the New England Dairy council and the Fuel up to Play 60 program to host our first ever Breakfast Recipe Challenge! This challenge is open to elementary school and junior high school students across the state. We are asking students to put together a team to create a unique breakfast recipe featuring wholesome ingredients that can be added to our school breakfast menu. Recipe submissions are due April 27th and can be submitted right to your school’s cafeteria workers or emailed to NEDFC@newenglanddairy.com. Five teams will be selected to compete in a statewide cooking challenge in May for a panel of celebrity judges. Winners will not only have their recipe featured on Aramark breakfast menus state-wide but will also be featured in Stop & Shop circulars around the state and will win a $3,500 breakfast make-over for their school!

vet 5KOn November 11th, twelve of our Aramark managers set time aside to volunteer at the Park View Veterans’ Day 5K Run/Walk in Cranston, RI. All of these managers hail from different school districts throughout the state, and gave up their mornings to support this fundraiser to help the Wounded Warrior Project. In addition to the food that we were able to donate, we had a few people guiding the finishers of the race, others removing runners’ tags to track their finishing order, and even had five participants in the race itself! It was a blast serving our local community and the returned armed forces service members to whom we all owe so much.

I’m sure you all have heard of RI’s famous little boy from Westerly! Dorian Murray is a student at Springbrook Elementary who is suffering from terminal pediatric cancer. With all the struggles life has dealt him he still remains a positive, funny and amazingly wise beyond his age young boy who is loved greatly by his family, friends and community.

 

It is amazing to see that for the second time this year during tragedy how close the Westerly community is and how they all come together and offer their support to families in need. It also warms my heart to know that people all over the world are joining in on the #D-Strong movement and making Dorian’s wish of becoming famous before he goes to heaven come true!

 

Today, the Westerly School District called for all students, staff and administration to wear blue in honor of Dorian. I thought I would share with you some of my staff pictures taken today. These will be posted on the “Praying for Dorian” Facebook page, monitored by his mother, in hopes it will bring a smile to his face that all the Westerly “lunch ladies” are thinking of him and his family.
