Starting in September, vegan “chicken” nuggets are also on the middle and high schools’ menus instead of just by request, Kim Young, general manager for Aramark Great Lakes West, K-12 education, said.

District 202 and Aramark worked together on the changes. Aramark offers entrees across District 202’s 17 elementary, seven middle and four high schools in a five-week rotation, Young said.

The food service company uses student feedback and its own surveys to decide new menu options, she said.

Aramark will put a new menu item, such as a loaded chicken pizza, on its high school menus so students can try it, Young said. Items that sell well will be put into the rotation to expand the offerings, she added.
