Two culinary pros served lunch to Burlington kids on Tuesday to highlight the important role school meals play in the community.
At Integrated Arts Academy in Burlington's Old North End, Butch + Babe's chef Jaclyn Major  spooned turkey meatballs smothered in Bove's marinara sauce onto students' trays. A few miles away, Jordan Ware, chef at Hen of the Wood and a 2017 James Beard Award semifinalist, stir-fried meat and veggies for teens at Burlington High School.

Major and Ware didn't create the dishes they were serving. But they will do just that in a few weeks. On Wednesday, February 27, they'll team up in the Butch + Babe's kitchen to host Love School Lunch, a cafeteria-inspired meal for both kids and adults. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Burlington School Food Project, a farm-to-school program that provides breakfast, lunch and supper to students in the Burlington School District.

Both Butch + Babe's and Hen of the Wood have ties to the  Burlington School Food Project. Kortnee Bush, owner of Butch + Babe's, worked in the cafeteria at Burlington's Hunt Middle School before opening her restaurant. And Ware's sister works in food service at Burlington High School.

Iris Chesnut, 9, Sharon
If snow was made of ice cream
I would stick out my tongue
Catching ice cream snowflakes
With a little more yum

If snow was made of ice cream
We’d have an ice cream factory
Shaping peaceful ice cream flakes
Falling into a snowflake sanctuary


Eleonore Wilson, 9, Weybridge
If snow was made of ice cream….
you would eat and laugh and play
Yes, you would do this every day
If snow was made of ice cream
You would never go to sleep
Because ice cream was so cheap,
It would be ice cream galore
Fudge, coco and much much more
