Feeding the future: Behind the scenes of a cafeteria
By Tanisha Agrawal
Conestoga High School
The heart of a school, the cafeteria, holds so much in a day, an hour, and a moment.
For students, lunchtime exists for only an hour. The prep may seem easy, but behind the scenes –– there is a lot more to be done.
Conestoga High School, located in the Tredyffrin Easttown School District, houses more than 3,000 students, all of whom have lunch in one cafeteria within a two-hour time period. A small, close-knit group of cafeteria workers makes this possible. Coming from different countries and backgrounds, these men and women bring together their culinary mastery to put together a meal for each and every student.
