TUSD's Catalina High School and the district's Food Services Department want you to come try some internationally-inspired food as the high school preps for the Healthier U.S. School Challenge: Smarter Lunches.

About the challenge:
It is a voluntary certification initiative recognizing those schools enrolled in Team Nutrition that have created healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity.
In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama introduced Let’s Move!, incorporating HUSSC: SL into her campaign to raise a healthier generation of kids. At that time, monetary incentive awards became available for each HUSSC:SL award level: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Gold Award of Distinction.
To date, HUSSC: SL awards have been given to schools in 49 states and the District of Columbia. As of December 22, 2014, there are 6,797 schools certified (4,638 Bronze, 1,229 Silver, 573 Gold, and 357 Gold Awards of Distinction).
At the tasting event, which will include dishes inspired by the youngsters' native countries, your role would be to stuff your face and then score the food. The winner would move forward to student tasting and would get a change to be on the school menu next year. Oh something else, the winning dish will be served on the menu at Lodge on the Desert.

Student dancers representing Nepal and Somalia will perform at the beginning of the evening, and each entrée will come with information about the country of origin.

The event takes places Thursday, Jan. 22 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. For more info, call Food Services at 225-4700.
