FLIK will host Pace Yourself Day on both campuses. 'Akahi will serve on Monday 12/05/2016 and Kalama will serve on Thursday 12/08/2016. Portion awareness is one of the key pillars in the pace yourself initiative along with waste reduction. In efforts to educate on portion size and waste reduction, the menu for Pace Yourself December is as follows: Herb Crusted Pork Loin topped with Shitake Sauce, steamed white rice and fresh vegetables. We typically serve Gen Ji Mai brand brown rice as our standard rice serving because of its higher nutritional value. However, over the last two school years we have found that steamed white rice is the preferred starch and so we have chosen to serve it during December’s Pace Yourself Day. White rice, being the favorite, comes with the largest of the self-serve portions and also the largest amount of post-consumption waste. Please let your student know that they will be served one (1) USDA Recommended Portion Size per trip through the entrée and saimin lines (Saimin at High School Only). The goal is that our guests will Pace Themselves while eating and listen to their bodies. If they are still hungry they are welcome to come back for another recommended serving as many times as they are able. Salad, Bar, Fruit and Yogurt Bar, Deli Bar and Composed Salads will still be offered as a self-serve option. We are looking for volunteers to help serve on both campuses if you know anyone interested we offer huge mahalos and free lunch in exchange for service
