Barricade the parking lots! The foodies are coming!!

The Coupeville School District’s food service program, headed up by Andreas Wurzrainer, has been spotlighted on the US Department of Agriculture’s web site.

Cow Town is in there punching with school districts from Colorado, Georgia, West Virginia, and Oklahoma.

In their write-up, the USDA hails Coupeville for using “homemade, scratch cooked” food and stresses the success of its meal box setup.

Follow the star.

Same great food, new place to get it.

Coupeville’s Connected Food Program is altering where high school and middle school students and parents will pickup weekly meal boxes.

Forget about coming in off of S. Main and pulling up in front of the high school entrance.

Instead, use Terry Road and slide into the lot in front of the middle school entrance.

The handy-dandy photo seen above should make the transition clear.

The change goes into affect next Wednesday, October 28.

With all Washington state schools closing for at least six weeks on the orders of Governor Jay Inslee, everyone is scrambling to deal with the fallout.

Coupeville High School is answering one issue, as it will provide food for local students.

The school’s Connected Food Program, run by Andreas Wurzrainer, will offer a grab-and-go lunch service starting Tuesday, March 17.

Pickup is in the CHS commons/cafeteria between 10-11 AM each day, Monday through Friday.

Any child under the age of 18 is eligible for a free lunch, but the child must show-up in person to receive the meal.

It’s the taste sensation sweeping the nation, and your stomach can get in on the good times.

The Coupeville School District’s Connected Food Program and Chef Andreas Wurzrainer are holding a community dinner this Thursday, Dec. 12.

The event, which runs from 5:30-6:30 PM, will take place in the commons area at Coupeville High School.

Suggested donation for the meal is $5 per person and $20 per family, which goes towards supporting the new, made-from-scratch, locally-sourced, superior-tasting food program being run at Coupeville’s schools.

And what do you get for your fiver?

According to Wurzrainer, “the menu is the same type of food we offer our students each day, with a bit of a holiday theme.”

In other words:

*Oven roasted pork loin with mushroom gravy
*Glazed carrots (sourced from Deep Harvest Farm and Foxtail Farm)
*Mashed potatoes (sourced from Bell’s Farm)
*Cabbage slaw
*Cornbread muffin with cranberry apple jam

The dinner is timed so you can go right from it to the CMS (6:30) and CHS (7:30) winter concerts, which are held a few steps away in the school’s Performing Arts Center.

If you’re planning on attending the dinner, they’re asking you to RSVP, so Wurzrainer and Co. will have an idea of how many meals they’ll likely be serving.

Quick! Someone save the chocolate mousse recipe!!

The Coupeville restaurant scene is about to witness a huge transition, as Christopher’s on Whidbey is changing ownership for the first time in nearly two decades.

Head chef/owner Andreas Wurzrainer released the following statement Tuesday night:

It is with mixed emotions, that we announce that after nearly 18 years, Lisa and I have decided to hand the Christopher’s apron over to new owners.

As many of you know, I have been offered a position as the Director of Food Services for the Coupeville School District to head up their new Connected Food Program, which will focus on scratch-made, locally-sourced (when possible), and high-quality food for the students in our school district.

I feel honored to be a part of these exciting changes!

This new opportunity to make a substantial difference in the health and well-being of Coupeville’s children deserves my full attention.

After serious consideration, we realized that this new position, coupled with the daily responsibilities of running a busy restaurant, would be just too much for me.

Owning Christopher’s has allowed us to live and work in this amazing community on this magical island!

On this journey we have made many lasting and wonderful memories and built countless treasured friendships.

We have felt connected with, and loved and appreciated by, our local community and we feel privileged to have been able to raise Sebastian and Tia here.

Coupeville is our home and we care very deeply about it.

Shortly after we made the decision to sell, we heard that Brian and Nancy Cedar, the former owners of the Greenbank Grille, were looking for an opportunity to again serve great food to our island community.

We reached out to them and were thrilled to discover that they were indeed very excited about the prospect of taking over Christopher’s to continue to build on what we have grown over the years and to give it their own personal touch.

We believe they will be a great asset to the community, and we look forward to seeing how they make it their own.

They will officially take ownership on July 1. Until then, business as usual at Christopher’s.

Lisa and I will be opening the pantry (in the building adjacent to the restaurant) for the last two days of June (Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30) from 1:00 until 6:00 with a very limited menu.

Come by and say hello, we would love to see you!

Thank you for being part of our lives for the last 18 years, we will cherish it forever!

Andreas
