Update: Denny “Lunch Ladies” did it – they broke the record!

We dropped by the Denny International Middle School cafeteria just before lunch today – to visit the fabled Lunch Ladies who had let us know earlier this week (as reported here) about their plan to try to break a record for most school lunches served in a day. The old record was 599 – and Doree Fazio-Young sent word late today that they did it, serving 604! We talked to her moments before they started serving – and she explained the day’s OTHER big events:

Doree and Sue have worked together for 20 years. Congrats on the record!

    It’s a shame they have to serve pizza and french fries to convince kids to eat.
    The lunch ladies do a great job with what they’re given, but they should be given healthy food to serve.

      Denny actually has a pioneering program with healthy alternatives – if you watch the video, we eventually pan off to the veggies. Denny’s program is described here (linked in our previous story)
