Continuing Our Thanksgiving Meal Tradition

Many of our schools serve a festive meal of roasted turkey and all the trimmings to students and their families.

APS is expecting to serve more than 70,000 Thanksgiving meals. 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.

The menu includes roasted turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, season mixed vegetables, cranberry sauce, dinner roll, cinnamon apples with whipped topping and milk.

Cost is $5 for adults, $3.70 for siblings, $3.70 for APS employees, $2 for elementary school students, $2.25 for middle or high school students. The meal is free for students who qualified for free or reduced-price meals or who attend one of the 83 schools that qualify for the Community Eligibility Provision.

Tickets for family members will only be sold in the school cafeteria on the day of the event. Cash only and no bills larger than $20. Exact change preferred.
