WFISD students get to choose new lunch menu items

WICHITA FALLS, TX (TNN) - The more than 3,500 students in the WFISD high schools were invited to sample two new menu items this week, and vote for their favorite.

The activity was a part of “Student Choice," a new program introduced by food service partner Chartwells K12.

WFISD is one of just 150 school districts across the nation to launch the Student Choice program.

The program aims to bring the latest in food trends to school cafeterias. This week, students at Hirschi, Old High and Rider sampled “Roost," a classic chicken sandwich with a choice of sauces and bok choy, a teriyaki chicken over fried rice with sweet and spicy green beans.

"‘Roost,’ a restaurant-inspired concept, is their favorite,” said Marci Spruiell, Chartwells marketing director. “Roost” claimed 70 percent of the high school students’ votes.
