Kids are going back to school this week ... sort of. Some of them are going to school in buildings, while others are learning fractions over Zoom. Regardless of where they are, all of them need lunch.
This week on the Corner Table, food editor Lindsay Christians and co-host Chris Lay talk with Irene Pawlisch, lead cook for Madison Metropolitan School District's food services and vice president of the Wisconsin chapter of the School Nutrition Association. She's been figuring out how to get food to kids who need it, even when they're learning virtually at home. Everything about school seems stressful these days, but Irene's been lightening things up with funny costumes and vegetable jokes.
Make yourself a PB&J — crust on or off — and give a listen!
