With Webster's interior re-design there is a brand new kitchen, so fresh food is prepared on-site for meals. The dining hall is a space for meals as well as school and community gatherings.
We have a family style dining program at Webster! A huge thank you to Bertrand Weber and his MPS Culinary and Nutritional Services staff for working with us to develop the program; and to Rachael Mohr, our Webster Nutrition Coordinator, for getting our program up and running. We all, including our students, have worked hard to develop our systems to support this program which is unique to Webster Elementary.
Why family style dining?
Family style dining helps to create a comfortable, healthy dining experience; provides opportunity for students to engage with each other in mealtime conversations; and student ownership of the space. Students sit in groups with one adult joining their table. Students enjoy engaging in practical life activities, such as bringing the food to the table, helping to set the table, pouring beverages into cups, helping to clear the table, and engaging with each other as they pass food around the table. Other benefits of this model:
We engage our students in helping us to improve our process so that we have a healthy and joyful dining experience for all. If you would like to help out, please contact us so we can get you on our volunteer schedule.
