Sushi flats offered at East Haven's Diversity Day

On Friday June 14th, East Haven High School celebrated “Diversity Day”. Chef Rich Sandmann, Guest Chef from Whitsons School Nutrition, visited the school and prepared a delicious meal that embodied the spirit of “Diversity Day” at East Haven High School.

The delicious menu included classic American specialties, such as hand carved rotisserie roast beef au jus on a roll, and various international specialties that reflected New Haven’s cultural diversity such as Middle Eastern homemade falafel with taboule, hummus and tzaziki sauce in a pita pocket; sushi flats, including California, Philly, veggie, or spicy shrimp rolls with Miso soup and spring green salad; Mexican-inspired Street Cart Taco Festival with Pork Carnitas, Grilled Chicken and Fish Tacos; and Italian street food such as classic fried dough with sauce or powdered sugar and grilled sausage and pepper subs with mozzarella cheese.

The Diversity Day lunch was a great success! Students and staff loved the lunch and learned a little bit more about other cultures through food. Enjoying different flavors from the world is a wonderful way to celebrate our community’s diversity!
