“We are putting new additions on our lunch menu, and I think what’s interesting about this is a number of these dishes are actually created by students in a contest,” Deasy said.

“So many of the students have a high facility for how to use the technology, and the teachers of course have the high facility of the content. So it’s going to be a rather remarkable match,” Deasy said. “I’m incredibly proud of the fact that we are leading the way in California on this.”
