Message from our new Food Service Director - Bob Gorman
Greetings North Olmsted parents and guardians. My name is Bob Gorman and I'm extremely honored to be your child's new school Food Service Director. I come to North Olmsted from from Denver, Colorado where I worked for the USDA as the Farm to School Regional Lead. While working for the USDA, I shared my love and passion for local foods and Farm to School practices.
I've worked or partnered with many of the best food service directors in the country, including Anne Cooper at Boulder Valley School district in Colorada, Doug Davis from Burlington, VT and Chef Robert Rusan from Mapleton Richmond Heights in Missouri.
My background includes over 25 years of food service experience in a variety of industries, including fine dining, military, hospitals and schools. While working in the Denver Public Schools, my teammates and I implemented scratch cooking, salad bars and procurement of local foods in over 140 schools.
I'm excited to bring many of the Farm to School practices to our North Olmsted school district. The students will notice some of the changes this year that include using locally sourced produce and providing fresh salad bars. The students will become official "taste testers" of different vegetables including zucchini, brussel sprouts, beets and sweet potatoes made into tasty baked "fries."
