Seymour students are now able to belly up to the bar at lunch.
Students at some Seymour Community Schools can choose from a wider variety of fresh vegetables thanks to new garden salad bars.
Seymour Middle School and Seymour-Redding Elementary School are the first schools in the district to try out the feature. Administrators say they are seeing encouraging results.
“We got them up and running in December, and there’s not a day that goes by that the kids aren’t using them,” food services director Bonnie Burbrink said.
Other schools, including Seymour-Jackson, Emerson and Margaret R. Brown elementary schools, will be able to use their garden bars beginning next week.
Cortland Elementary School and the Sixth Grade Center won’t have them right now, Burbrink said, because their cafeterias are not large enough, and Seymour High School already offers prepared chef salads daily.
