Lakota students and their families got their first taste of Thanksgiving when schools opened their cafeteria doors for a special lunch.

It was a record year -- Child Nutrition served more Thanksgiving meals than ever before!

Lots of volunteers helped the Child Nutrition staff serve the holiday feast.

Lakota's special Thanksgiving meal consisted of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, green beans, stuffing and warm cinnamon apples.

Lakota's Child Nutrition staff and volunteers served over 3000 lbs. of turkey and 250 gallons of gravy for the Thanksgiving meal!

Students helped make centerpieces and decorate the cafeterias for the Thanksgiving meal.

Parents and family members joined students throughout the district for a special Thanksgiving lunch.
