WDC introduces 'scratch cooking'
Wadena-Deer Creek elementary students recently enjoyed homemade pizza from scratch during their school lunch. According to WDC Food Services Director, Sandie Rentz, the pizza ingredients were purchased from Roma Foods of Rice, Minn., a company known for their fresh ingredients.
Elementary cooks Arlis Kern, Nadine Wegscheid, Rosie Middendorf, Carmen Robinson, Mary Schmitt and Lisa Ashbaugh made 20 large pans of fresh, hot pizza for K-6 students, who devoured the tasty slices. WDC cooks are implementing more "scratch cooking" into their lunch menus, such as a variety of fresh, healthy salads and lasagna.
