New Food Service Program
I hope this finds you enjoying the end of your summer vacation!
I am Holli LaBarbera, the new Regional Food Service Director for Litchfield, Plymouth and Region 6. In my former position as the Food Service Director for Education Connection, I was responsible for directing full food-service programs for six school districts. Some of my responsibilities in each of the twenty-one schools in those districts included staffing and evaluating the cafeteria staff and creating healthy and appealing menus and meals that also adhered to strict Federal and local guidelines. I worked there for two great years and prior to that, I worked for eight years in the Colchester Public Schools Food Services. I started my career in the dish room and have worked my way up to Director in my 10 years of School Food Services experience.
I chose to make the move from Education Connection to regional director to focus on school meals. With this move I will now only have three Districts and eleven Schools and my responsibilities will only include National School Lunch Program. This will allow me to focus on what I am extremely passionate about.
These are big changes, new people, new menus, new products, new procedures and with these big changes we will have some bumps along the way. I am committed to making each district’s Food Service Program a successful one. My office is located in Litchfield, but I will be traveling to Plymouth on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This will leave me time in Litchfield and Region 6 on Monday’s, Wednesday’s, and Friday’s. I am always available for any questions or concerns you may have.
I look forward to a fun and nutritional school year!
Please let the cafeteria staff cater your teacher meetings, pizza parties for the classroom, and birthday party snacks. We can supply all that is needed!
