"The founding of our school was based on health and nutrition and teaching kids how to make healthy choices in the belief that they would be more successful academically and in their life," said principal and co-founder Robert Groff, who started the school in 2008.
Over time, the cafeteria began to reduce the number of days per week it would serve the students meat-based entrees, until it finally did away with them altogether this past January.
Now, in lieu of chicken nuggets and "mystery meat," the school serves black bean quesadillas and tofu vegetables wraps with a side of plantains.
And the kids seem to love it.
For what it's worth, pizza is still available every Friday. Plain cheese only.
