Keystone Foodservice provides Ringling schools with new meal options

A unique approach to
preparing and serving
meals that are healthy and
nutritious is now available

students at Ringling Public Schools in December.
Keystone Foodservice
focuses on providing
freshly prepared breakfast
and lunch options for the
students it serves approximately 44,000 meals
each day in cafeterias
across the state.
Keystone employs four
employees in Ringling,
and they serve approximately 500 meals each
day here.
We are pleased to have
this opportunity and the
ladies in the cafeteria are
doing a great job, said
Keystone child nutrition
specialist Brett Feeback.
Lunch includes a full
salad bar, stocked daily
with fresh fruits and vegetables. Free and reduced
prices are available for
students who qualify.
Our goal is to provide
healthy meals that kids
will actually eat, said
Josh Sanders, CEO for
Keystone Foodservice.
We do that by listening
to the kids and by continually introducing new
foods. When it comes to
a healthy diet, kids and
adults have this in common: variety is key.

homa, and the company

continues to grow.
There are some great
school administrators in
Oklahoma who truly want
to do whats best for their
students, and they are
willing to think outside
the box when it comes to
nutrition, Sanders said.
We are proud to partner with Ringling Public

Schools, and we are grateful to the school board

and the administration
for their willingness to try
something new to benet
the kids they serve. We are
already getting great feedback about the food we are
serving here, and we are
looking forward to always
cooking up something
great for these kids.

At Keystone, we believe cafeteria food can be

nutritious and delicious at
the same time. Our goal
is to cook nutritious foods
that kids will want to eat,
and thats what we do each
and every day at the dozens of schools we serve,
said Feeback.
Keystones menu offerings include homemade
chicken enchiladas, baked
tilapia, honey-baked ham
and char-grilled ham-

burgers made from lean

ground beef. Main courses
are accompanied by offerings including freshly
steamed vegetables and
hand-cut sweet potato
fries. Study after study
has shown that kids who
eat a balanced diet perform better in school, so
we take the work we do
seriously, Sanders said.
We want the kids to
leave the cafeteria full and
ready to focus on the day.

Our meals dont just taste

Actors take the stage in one of musical theaters favorites during Ardmore Little Theatres presentation of Fiddler on the Roof,
opening Thursday, February 25, at the Goddard Arts Center.
Fiddlers original production won 10 Tony Awards, including
a later special honor for becoming the longest-running Broadway
musical of all time. The show reopened for its fth Broadway
revival shortly before the new year. Among the shows well-loved
songs are If I Were a Rich Man, Sunrise, Sunset, Matchmaker, Matchmaker and Tradition, in a celebration of family,
community and lifes unexpected miracles in the show.
Set in rural Russia more than 100 years ago, the story points
to issues that remain timely today. In 1905, Jewish inhabitants
of the small village of Anatevka are poor but they have their traditions to sustain them. Tevye, a dairy farmer, perhaps struggles
most as he cares for his wife, Golde, and his ve daughters (three
of marrying age), plus an ailing horse. Pressure from the Czars
governance and intruding modern ideas also challenge the fam
ilys traditional way of life.
Performances are at 7:00 p.m., on Thursday, Friday and
Saturdays, Feb. 25-27, and again March 3-5. There will be one
afternoon performance at 2:30 p.m., on Sunday, Feb. 25.
Admission is $15 for adults and $8 for students. Reservations
open to the public on Monday, Feb. 22, and may be made in person at the ALT ofce in the Goddard Art Center, by phone at 580
223-6387 or online at http://www.ardmorelittletheater.com/.
