Adair School Menu link posted this morning

The link to the Adair County School menu for November 4 - November 29, 2013 PDF has been posted and is available each day the local school menu is included in the What's Cooking feature.

Hope everyone will look it over, see what the kiddies are eating during November. Today they are having a delicacy, Fresh Blueberries. Don't know if these are locally grown or not, but it has been encouraging to know that Adair, as well as Metcalfe and Russell, participate in the Farm to School nutrition program.

CM posts the daily menus. The link is provided for those who may want to plan meals at home and shopping trips to the grocery and eating out around the school menus. As with many links, we check the speed before posting; thanks to the I.T. - the technology geeks - at ACHS and cable access, we've always found the connection to be be very fast. - CM
