Abbott Middle School had a Soup-er-Bowl soup cook off for the staff as well as our canned food drive put on by their Fuel Up to Play 60 group. The event was organized by Miguel Medel, the Food and Nutrition Services Manager. FNS staff, faculty, and students participated in the food drive, which went over very well. In return, prizes were awarded to students from Fuel Up to Play 60 prize stash. FNS staff and faculty made a variety of appetizers and soups. Miguel made a traditional cheese soup with bacon and scallions and pretzel bites to top the soup along with a squirt bottle of rendered bacon fat to drizzle over the soup. The teachers made traditional gumbo, red posole, tuscan white bean soup, cheese tortellini soup. The Elgin Police Department came in to sample judge the food. The students enjoyed the celebration and the food drive was a success!
