THE 1996 "GRAND Silver Success Award" was presented to Nancy Budich, cafeteria manager at Phelps Luck Elementary School, at last month's annual convention of the Maryland State Food Service Association.

She was nominated by her peers for outstanding performance and accomplishments in promoting health and nutrition awareness, fostering good public relations and increasing participation in the school's lunch program.

Howard County Superintendent Michael E. Hickey, Phelps Luck Principal Jim Weisner, Howard food and nutrition service administrator Mary Klatko and Janice White, prep school manager at Howard High School, all added their congratulations during the award program.

Dining for dollars

Holiday shopping and meetings seem to leave little time for food preparation.

The Stevens Forest school staff has the solution for dinner Nov. 20.

Everyone is invited to Stevens Forest night at the Dobbin Center McDonald's restaurant from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., when the school's staff will be behind the counter serving all orders.

The school will earn a percentage of McDonald's profits to help pay for student activities.

Thanksgiving giving

When you are grocery shopping in Owen Brown Village, why not buy an extra nonperishable food item and take a minute to stop at the Owen Brown Community Center, 6800 Cradlerock Way, and contribute to the village's Thanksgiving food drive?

The food will be donated to Columbia's Grassroots organization, which helps needy families all through the year.

Oakland history

Talbot Springs Elementary students were well-prepared when they participated in Historic Oakland's 185th anniversary last month.
