DPS and Durham Bowls Welcomes New Addition to School Lunch Menu

The wait is over! Durham Public Schools is proud to welcome the first of 10 new recipes from Durham Bowls 2018 at a school cafeteria near you.

On Thursday, December 6, 2018, DPS will introduce the Sweet Potato, Kale, and Mozzarella Flatbread created by Chef Ricky Moore (Saltbox Restaurants) and Manager Glenda Collins (Club Boulevard ES) at all DPS schools. The flatbread features locally-grown sweet potatoes and kale provided by Farmer Foodshare. All 10 Durham Bowls 2018 recipes will be featured on DPS menus in the coming months. Hungry?

About Durham Bowls 2018
On October 13th, 10 DPS café managers and 10 Durham chefs produced mouth-watering samples of their recipe-in-a-bowl concepts designed earlier in the year to meet student tastes, kitchen limitations, and all federal meal regulations. Almost 400 students, families, and community members turned out to eat great food, vote for their favorites, watch a documentary about Durham Bowls, face paint, dance to music, and more. Wooly Bull even stopped by!

One parent who attended the October 13th event wrote, “My kids and I were blown away by the ingenuity, creativity, and deliciousness displayed at this event. Durham Bowls made me so proud of DPS and of our community.”
