APS is the First System in Georgia to Offer Sushi!
I am excited to announce that this Monday our nutrition department will offer a new spicy crab sushi roll, a crisp veggie roll and tasty soy pockets to students in some of our APS middle and high schools.
Our executive chef for the district, Justin Gillette, recently held a taste test for the new rolls at Grady High School. He’s been working with John Stoj, owner and president of Rold Rite Sushi, since early 2013 to determine healthy menu alternatives. The crab and veggie rolls, as well as the soy pockets were developed just for APS. This is the first time a Georgia public school system has offered a sushi menu option.
We invited Grady High School students to taste the three offerings and vote on which ones they liked best. There was so much positive feedback that we will offer all three!
Take a look at my photos from the taste test. I enjoyed all of the offerings, and I look forward to eventually seeing this menu choice rolled out to all of our schools.
