The Environmental Health Division of Orange County has given the Award of Excellence to the school cafeterias at Columbus Tustin, Currie, Pioneer, and Utt middle schools; Orchard Hills School; and Beckman and Foothill high schools. Only schools with cooking kitchens are eligible to win this award.
The award is given to establishments in recognition of consistently protecting the residents and visitors of Orange County through excellence in food safety and sanitation at the food establishment.
The Award of Excellence Program was implemented in 1999 in an effort to encourage food establishments to strive for excellence in food safety and sanitation practices and to recognize those who succeed in these areas. This year’s award recipients were determined by a review of the establishment’s inspection reports.
“The inspection reports from these cafeterias indicate that the food handling practices and overall sanitation at their facilities were outstanding during the past year,” TUSD Nutrition Services Director Teresa Squibb said.
