Atlantic High School has introduced new changes in the lunchroom, including the Trojan Bowls. Trojan Bowls are a new lunch option for grades K-12.  

Food service director DeeAnn Schreiner said she saw a lot of students bringing “Lunchables” or lunches from home so she decided to challenge herself in creating the first of many visions for the lunch program. Schreiner said the feedback from this addition has been “very positive” and she is looking for new ideas. With the new Trojan Bowls, Schreiner said she was offering a healthy version that includes everything fresh. She said the only downside to these is the amount of inventory needed and how labor intensive it is.  

Senior Paige Williams said, “I like them, but they’re more like a snack. I think that they taste fresh and I really like that about them.”

Schreiner hopes to send out a student survey soon, but is waiting 30 days so she can get better data. Since school has started, 3600 Trojan Bowls have been sold. Schreiner says numbers have gone down from the first day of school, but still average 260 every day. She said it also depends on what is for lunch that day. Schreiner said, “I am anxious to see how the year progresses. I have heard nothing but positive comments from students and parents.”

Senior Ethan Halterman said, “I enjoy it  but would give it an 8/10. I would like lettuce in the turkey roll along with the wrap to give it a 10/10.”

Schreiner said, “I am very happy and overwhelmed which is a fantastic problem to have. I am so happy the students are eating, which is my main goal whether it is hot or cold lunch.” She said she appreciates everyones support and hopes to make this the best foodservice program she can.  

Another idea that came to Schreiner was finding new trends such as street food, international cuisines and anything students or faculty would enjoy. She is writing a grant and is hoping to get a food truck for juniors and seniors to be able to eat outside and order to-go.
