(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Manatee School’s Food & Nutrition Services department held a “Pop_Up” visit at LRHS Thursday.

They partnered with Food Sales East (FSE), the Impossible Burger and ASM Waypoint yesterday.

The customer service event was designed to allow Mustangs to try and get their feedback about new products.

Mustangs sampled the Gardin Black Bean Burger, The Impossible Burger, Don Lee Farm’s Better Than Chicken Nugget and the MorningStar Farms Veggie Classic Chik’n Nugget.

All the products are plant based.

Over 300 Mustangs showed up to try samples and take a survey.

“Hopefully in the future we can try another Pop-Up Lunch Event at Lakewood Ranch High,” she continued.
