Krosoczka, this day is set aside to honor those women and men who work hard to feed students. The kitchen staff at Blue Ridge preps 7 services per day from breakfast and lunch to preschool meals and after school snacks, as well as dinner for our TALENT Program. They truly are the Super Heroes of our school.
