Frank Edelblut: School Days, Lunch Trays & Gourmets

Edelblut Exeter High School

New Hampshire’s Commissioner of Education is making time to work the school lunch cafeterias around the state. In a Department of Ed feature titled School Days, Lunch Trays & Gourmets, Frank Edelblut (sort of) takes the Guy Fieri approach (Diners Drive-Ins and Dives) for an inside look at how school lunch gets done.

His first stop, Exeter High School.

“When the Commissioner reached out to us for this project, we were thrilled to be included and excited that Exeter High School was the first to be featured in this series,” Superintendent David Ryan said. “This was a great opportunity for us to showcase the talented culinary team that meets our students’ dietary needs on a daily basis using fresh, local and even homegrown ingredients to serve a wide range of excellent meal choices.”

The idea is to “give viewers an inside look at all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make school lunch happen.

Commissioner Edelblut did food prep and then helped serve lunch. Before he left he got a chance to wipe some trays and chat with students.

Here’s the first episode.
