Celebrating National School Lunch Week 2021

October 11-15 was National School Lunch Week, and this year the School Nutrition Association went "WILD About School Lunch!"

CCSD students are wild for school meals and our dedicated food service professionals who prepare and serve them! Thank you to our school nutrition professionals who play a vital role in helping our students succeed in and out of the classroom.

For National School Lunch Week, we profiled some of our CCSD Food Services staff who we are just WILD about:

George Fischer Middle School

 Eileen Perine 

We are WILD about school lunches and Eileen Perine, cook manager at George Fischer Middle School!

As the cook manager, Eileen oversees a staff of 7 who provides delicious nutritious breakfast and lunch to almost 1,200 students who attend the school. She has been with CCSD for 13 years!

Favorite part of her job: "When a child comes in and is super excited about school lunch and knowing that I had a part of creating that smile!"

Favorite food: "Mozzarella sticks, and it is by far the kids favorite."

If she could have one super power, she would choose: "Having more arms to do more at one time."

Carmel High School

 Siobahn Trippodo 

Meet Siobhan Trippodo from Carmel High School!

Siobhan is a familiar face for our CHS students at the deli counter, helping ensure that they leave the cafeteria with full stomachs.

CHS Cook Manager Cathy Smith boasted that Siobahn has been her right-hand in the cafeteria for the last 10 years!
