It’s 7 a.m. and cafeteria worker Leann Andrews is pushing a cart through the bustling hallways of North Hills Middle School. In the cart sit packages of banana, blueberry, and chocolate muffin next to cereal bars and breakfast sandwiches.
“One ham left. And cinnamon rolls? They’re gone,” Andrews gestures to metal hot holding units on the cart. “Sometimes we have leftovers, but today, they ate everything.”
The “they” she’s talking about are about 40-50 7th and 8th graders who’ve begun filing into the Ross Township area school. Lindsay Radzvin, director of food services for the district, said that’s an improvement from previous years. She attributes a lot of the program’s recent success to the mobile cart.
