Dear Bayside MLK Parents,

Welcome to the start of the new school year! It has been great to re- connect with your children in our Conscious Kitchen dining hall this week. Thank you for your continued support of our meal program, here at Bayside MLK. We stand with you in believing that our children should be well nourished by the food they are served at school – allowing them to develop strong minds and bodies and be great learners.

Here are a few things to note for this year;
– The Conscious Kitchen monthly menus will be available in print and sent out in your packet, as well as, on the school's website.

– We would like to ask you to spend a few moments with your student, reading over the month's menu. Circle which days they get most excited about and will look forward to. Chef Marco has prepared some awesome food this week!  

– The Conscious Kitchen team takes pride in offering a wide variety of entrees, fruits, vegetables and grain options throughout the month, which we hope your children will really enjoy for breakfast and lunch.

Chef Marco and Milagro are cooking up delicious food from scratch in the kitchen every day! Students are invited to get involved by helping in the dining hall and in the beautiful school garden. We love serving your children and providing a peaceful, beautiful space, designed to help them enjoy their meals alongside peers and staff."

You are also welcome to volunteer and help any day. Each time you volunteer, you will receive a really tasty meal as a thank you!
