Lilydale has a new canteen manager this year and the canteen has been given a Bronze award for healthy food. We decided to find out what’s going on in the canteen and ask a few questions of Mrs Blair and this is how the interview went.
Q: What would you rate the canteen health wise?
A: 5, mostly because of the pastry items.
Q: What would you like to take off the menu to improve the rating?
A: I think we should take off the pastry items and nuggets.
Q: How long have you been working in the school canteen?
A: I’ve been working in the canteen since October last year, almost a year!
Q: What is the best-selling food product in the canteen and why do you think so?
A: Chips and jellybeans because there isn’t many options on the sweets list.
Q: How many products are on the menu?
Q: How many specials are on the menu each week?
A: One a day. The options are chicken and vegetable pasta bake on Mondays, Pizzas on Tuesdays, Baked spuds on Wednesday, hot dogs on Thursday and burger day on Friday.
Q: Do you get any donations from outside of school? If so, where from?
A: People donate fruit from their gardens if they have too much.
Q: How many people are helping out in the canteen?
A: Not many! One person a day, twenty people on the books and ten people are working here.
