Calhoun's Eat Right Now Lunch Program

Calhoun's holistic approach to healthy eating has earned the school its position as a leader and pioneer. With Chef Bobo at the helm, Calhoun’s Eat Right Now lunch program aims to provide students with healthier meals while building a deep understanding of the importance of a well-balanced diet.

The program fosters numerous opportunities for Calhoun students to learn about food and its relation to their physical and mental well-being. The chefs frequently visit classrooms to offer cooking demonstrations and teach about the health, science, culture and politics of food. The integration of the food program into the life of the school creates an environment that promotes healthier attitudes about food and eating habits.

If you have any questions about Calhoun’s lunch program, the menu or the process, please reach out to Chef Bobo.

The entrée today is one that we have made only a couple of times before.  Chicken & Mushroom Stroganoff features a Chicken Stew made with paprika, onions and peppers, cremini mushrooms and seasoned with garlic, thyme and Dijon mustard.  It all cooks in our house made Chicken Stock.  At the end of cooking Sour Cream will be added to make it extra creamy.  This dish is Russian in origin and provides a hearty meal.

Vegetarians will enjoy Tempeh & Mushrooms Stroganoff prepared very much the same way but using vegetable stock.

Did the Groundhog get it right?

The entrée in Spanish is called Pollo Horneado or Roasted Chicken. This is not just plain roasted chicken.  It is a recipe from the Dominican Republic in which the chicken has been marinating for two days in Jose’s sofrito mixed with the juice of sour oranges.  Today it will be sprinkled with an adobe seasoning which consists of kosher salt, garlic powder, ground cumin, black pepper, oregano and onion powder.  Once seasoned, it will be placed in a hot oven to roast as only Jose can do it….until golden and crispy.

Welcome back from a nice looong weekend!

Our Pizza is a thin cut pizza with a tomato sauce that we made by cooking it overnight until it develops a rich, aromatic flavor….perfect for pizza.  We also get fresh mozzarella cheese which we cut up and shred to sprinkle over the pizza.  That’s a good pizza!  All the pizzas are cheese pizza.
