Greetings from the kitchen at Bellows Falls Union High School! We have some important and exciting announcements pertaining to the food at your school. First, we want to let you know that we are making a commitment to source more local food. You will periodically be seeing colorful signs in the cafeteria serving line letting you know where different items have been produced or grown. As part of this commitment, we recently switched to a Vermont made whole wheat bread for all of our bread products.
Congratulations to two Students of the Quarter at RVTC; Brendan Kelly who is enrolled in the Industrial Trades II program and Sean Malloy who is in Audio Video Production I. They were recognized with a luncheon at the Tech Center.
