Farm to Table Salads!

We are excited to announce that our cafeteria will be offering a made to order specialty salad bar on Tuesdays and Wednesdays! We sold over 200 made to order salads on our initial roll-out run this past Friday!

Customers enter the line and if they would like to get a salad they choose what they would like from our options that day. Food service employees build the salad for the customer as per their request. We will be changing the theme to it every two weeks.

The produce will be from local farms provided by Farm to Table. http://www.farmtotabletx.com

Prices for adult and student lunches remain the same, its just another exciting healthy option!

Street Maintence Notice

Where: Buffalo Pass from Berkeley Ave to dead end
When: Monday 4-11-16 to Saturday 4-16-16

From the City of Austin Public Works:
“This is to inform you of upcoming routine street maintenance on Buffalo Pass between Berkeley and the dead end. This section of Buffalo Pass is being repaved to improve prolong the life of the street by protecting the surface through routine street maintenance. The work involves grinding up the existing asphalt and base material, removing it, and applying new pavement. The end result will be a much smoother driving surface.

The street will remain open to traffic; access to driveways will be available. We encourage drivers to use extra caution in the work zone. Once the material is applied, rolled and compacted, vehicles may drive (slowly) on the new pavement. Following the street resurfacing work, crews will install pavement markings and striping within two weeks.

To help us do a quality job:
– Do not park on the street. Parked cars will be towed.– Do no allow lawn sprinklers to spray the street. Redirect them, or temporarily shut them off.
– Do not drive on the fresh pavement until it is rolled over and compact (approximately 45 minutes).
– Follow all work zone traffic signs, cones, and flaggers to help direct you.
– Reduce all speed; travel slowly and cautiously on the fresh pavement.”
