High school students on the SFUSD School Food Advisory Committee will be proposing four different recipes they developed for school menus in the fall. Guests will sample the new recipes and learn about the steps students took --  from analyzing nutrition, budgeting and sourcing ingredients -- to make a successful school meal. The SFUSD School Food Advisory Committee is a districtwide committee of 14 high schoolers who join the effort to improve their schools’ food. For the past semester, the students have dedicated their Friday evenings to work collaboratively with Student Nutrition Services on designing a student-centered lunch menu.

When:    Wednesday, May 17 / 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.

Where:   555 Franklin St. / Irving G. Breyer Board Room
