The South Pasadena High School cafeteria got a makeover this summer, with help from some student artists.
By News Desk
The students painted the wall of the SPHS cafeteria’s Tiger Express with fresh fruits and vegetables to inspire healthy food choices. The improved express area will offer plant-based options such as fresh salads, fruit and yogurt parfaits, and veggie wraps.
The dining area of the main cafeteria also will debut a new look and new offerings, come this fall, with a scratch-made approach to menu selections plus streamlined service areas, updated signage, and colorful graphics.
Most of the upgrades are funded by a state grant, earned by the SPUSD Nutrition Services Department. The grant will help purchase new and updated equipment that supports freshly prepared meals using minimally processed and sustainable food. The grant also is designed to support programs that expand meal options and reduce waste.
