What better way to spend Cinco De Mayo than with Mexican food on the menu.
As part of Multicultural Week activities at Manteca High, the Manteca Unified Nutrition Education team and the MHS Leadership class are offering up a choice Chipotle Crunch wrap, Enchirito with Spanish rice or taco salad during Thursday’s lunchtime festivities.
“Each day was a different culture (at the school),” said Stephanie Huff, who is MUSD Nutrition Education supervisor.
The week kicked off with European Day on Monday, featuring Polish dog, Bosco stick with marinara, and veggie salad.
Tuesday was Asian Day. The menu included Chicken Chow Mien, Oriental salad, and yogurt parfait.
Wednesday (today) is Soul Food / All-American Day.
“Our Chef Bryan is barbecuing,” said Huff. “We are serving up tri-tip sandwiches for lunch.”
The menu also includes hot link and veggie salad.
