There is a lot of hype around school lunches, and unfortunately a lot of times it is negative. It is our  mission in the Food Service Department to debunk these myths that school food is “gross” or “unhealthy”. There are so many reasons to celebrate school lunch! Take the traditional childhood favorite – PIZZA – for example. The pizza we serve in schools is not your standard pizza. Take a look at the article that Nick Fischer, Event and Program Dietitian at Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon who works with the Kids Of STEEL Program, wrote about the PPS school pizza.
