A Letter from the New Food Service Director

Dear Ferndale Elementary Parents & Staff,

Greetings! My name is Carrie Hall. I work with Chartwells Dining Services, and I am your NEW Food Service Director. I am very excited to be working with Ferndale Schools.

Our goal is to provide Healthy and Nutritious meals that the students will enjoy eating!

We have a new menu that we are sending out and want to take a few moments to explain some of the
new & exciting menu items we will be implementing.

First, you will see we will have a special food focus very month where we will introduce new Fruit and
Vegetables to the students, along with Educational time and sampling of new items. We will also have
an area in the cafeteria that will showcase all the information regarding our food focus of the month,
along with some fun activites for the students.

Second, your student will have 4 different choices to choose from every day: your main entrée that is
listed for that date along with the three daily choices that are listed on the bottom of menu.

If you have any questions please contact me:
