From east to west our Norfolk Public Schools family is the cornerstone of a proudly diverse community. School Nutrition wants to explore our community through tasting the flavors of your culture. Submit your family recipes to give our community a taste of YOUR kitchen for the school year 2019-20.
To submit your recipe you may either print out our Recipe Card and submit to your school’s School Nutrition Manager or fill-out our online Recipe Card form by March 29. Recipes should include the name, cultural region, serving size, ingredients, and cooking instructions as well as why this recipe is important to your family. Multiple recipe submissions are encouraged!
School Nutrition would also appreciate receiving pictures of your family preparing and enjoying your recipes. To send pictures you may either give hard copies to your school’s School Nutrition Manager, email them to SchoolNutrition@nps.k12.va.us, or include as part of your recipe submission online.
Recipes will be adapted to meet Federal School Nutrition standards. Please call the School Nutrition Office, 757-628-2760 if you have any questions.
