Six APS Cafeteria Kitchens Win Excellence Awards

Honored were the kitchen staffs at Chamiza, Chelwood, Mary Ann Binford and Tierra Antigua elementary schools, and Manzano and Volcano Vista high schools.

Six APS cafeteria kitchens have been selected for Kitchen of Excellence awards by the APS Food and Nutrition Services Division.

“Each year we recognize school kitchens in the district that have done an exceptional job of serving students healthy, tasty meals while meeting their needs with a smile,” said Mary Swift, director of Food and Nutrition Services for the district.

Honored with Kitchens of Excellence awards this year were the kitchen staffs at Chamiza, Chelwood, Mary Ann Binford and Tierra Antigua elementary schools, and Manzano and Volcano Vista high schools.

Included in the evaluations are the kitchen staff’s teamwork, customer service, ability to complete paperwork on time, percentage of students served at the individual school, and their success in ordering and keeping accurate inventory of food items.

Two other schools, Alamosa and Duranes elementaries, were honored for having kitchen staffs that go above and beyond their regular service to students by providing services to special programs such as after-school, during inter-sessions and to City/County Child Development Centers located on their campuses.

District managers from Food and Nutrition Services visit each of the winning schools and present them with a plaque and flowers.

“At Tierra Antigua, the principal got the whole school involved and had a student assembly in the cafeteria to recognize the staff when we presented the award,” Swift said.
