The students and faculty at Berne Union School were treated to a delicious Polynesian feast in the form of a suckling pig for an end of the year celebration.

Hawaiian Hog

The smell of roasted pork wafted through the halls of the Berne Union School Tuesday. Chefs from Taher, the contractor that manages the district’s cafeteria, spent Monday night and Tuesday morning preparing the centerpiece of the farm-to-table meal: Bobbie Jo, a locally raised hog. The hog was roasted for 16 hours before being served to students with honey mustard sauce, a Samoan barbecue sauce, and a mango-pineapple salsa. The meal was available to all 550 students, from preschool to 12th grade,in the district.
