Taco Tuesday is Back!
On Tuesday, May 14, our school will take part in the seventh annual region wide Taco Tuesday! The lunchtime event will showcase tacos made with local beef. Clint Victorine and the ranchers that sell through his Pacific Pastures and Eel River Organic Beef labels are once again the primary sponsors. Their beef cattle are completely free of steroids, antibiotics, hormones, and genetically modified foods.
The tacos will be accompanied by Humboldt Creamery sour cream and the salsa that won the Most Marketable award at the 2018 Kid’s Salsa Recipe Competition. Called “Double Delicious Tropical Salsa,” the recipe was created by a team of after school students from Lafayette Elementary School while working with Chef Josh Wiley of Restaurant Five Eleven. Eureka Natural Foods, sponsor of the Salsa Competition, will be producing over 30 gallons of salsa for the May 14 event.
Thanks so much to our local businesses for sponsoring Taco Tuesday, and to the Humboldt County Office of Education for organizing the event. Be sure to check out local beef and student-created salsa in the cafeteria during Taco Tuesday on May 14!
