Thank You, Maywood Food Services Team!

Members of the Maywood Food Services team pause for a photo together.

October 9-13 is National School Lunch Week! Please join us as we celebrate and show gratitude to our amazing Food Services staff this week and beyond. On the district website and social media this week, we're sharing photos and videos of our staff in action, preparing and serving tasty, healthy school lunches for students. School lunches are designed to meet specific nutritional needs for growing kids – helping to ensure students are healthy and ready to learn!

Maywood Middle School staff said they find working in the school cafeteria fun and rewarding. Kitchen Manager Jill Meitzel has been serving lunches at the school for 11 years and says she “can’t think of a better place to be.” Meitzel is a Maywood alum, and her own children were Chargers, too. 

Thank you, Maywood Food Services crew, Jill Meitzel, Mary Duchesneau, Tikko Sihombing, and Victoria Williams. You are appreciated!

Created by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, National School Lunch Week is designated to promote the importance of healthy school lunches in a child’s life and its impact inside and outside the classroom.
