How Lakewood Catholic Academy makes the best school lunches you've ever seen: NorthEATS Ohio

Lago East Bank has been serving students fresh and healthy meals for six years.

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — When you think of standard school cafeteria, food images of Chris Farley serving sloppy joes in "Lunch Ladyland" on Saturday Night Live might come to mind. 

That image isn't the case at Lakewood Catholic Academy. They have turned their school lunches into a gourmet stop for students, and it's all thanks to Lago East Bank. 

Lago has been in charge of the school's kitchen for the past six years. Since then, the cafeteria has only served fresh foods with natural ingredients made directly in the kitchen by their head Chef Leah. 

Dishes like pasta primavera are served to students, in addition to fresh soups, parfaits and an extensive salad bar. 

One of the owners of Lago East Bank, Nicole Salerno, says that kids don't miss the high fat, high sugar foods and prefer the natural and more healthy options.
