Janet Stevenson has joined the Solvang School Viking Cafe staff as our new Food Service Director. She and her team are committed to serving lunches every day that are nutritious and kid friendly. You won't find any processed foods in the Viking Cafe. Janet and her team cook almost exclusively from scratch. They make all their own sauces, salad dressings, soups and they bake bread whenever possible. The menu emphasizes whole grains, low sugar and local grown, fresh produce. A vegetable and serving of fresh fresh fruit is included in every meal. Some of the foods that many of our students have tried for the first time in the Viking Cafe and have loved include fresh sugar snap peas, kale chips, roasted cauliflower and blueberry-banana smoothies.
As part of our commitment to educating students about good eating habits, the Viking Cafe does not serve flavored milk. Students have the choice of fat-free or 1% milk from dairies that do not use hormones.
If your student is a vegetarian or has special dietary needs, the Viking Cafe cafe can provide a vegetarian meal if the Chef has advance notice. Please make arrangements with Chef Janet at 697-4448.
The smiles on the faces of our students and the positive feedback we have received has been overwhelming. Thank you for your support!
