Continuing Our Thanksgiving Meal Tradition

Many of our elementary schools serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal to students and families.

We're expecting to serve more than 70,000 Thanksgiving meals in many of our elementary school cafeterias over the next couple of weeks. The meals consist of roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, seasoned mixed vegetables, cranberry sauce, a dinner roll, cinnamon apples with whipped topping and milk. We also have red chile available for those looking for a local touch.

Sandra Kemp, the executive director of APS Food and Nutrition Services, says that 18,000 pounds of turkey will be served as well as more than 6,000 dozen rolls.

Families are often invited to join their children, and many do, like those at La Mesa Elementary School.

Not all elementary schools invite families to join their children for a number reasons including limited cafeteria space and parking.
