Dozens of Davis Joint Unified School District custodians and maintenance staffers filled the Holmes Junior High multipurpose room last Friday to celebrate a year’s worth of excellent partnering in program improvements and to receive congratulations from Yolo Farm to Fork and Davis Farm to School.

Administrators who enjoyed the time spent socializing and eating with the group included Superintendent Winfred Roberson, Laura Juanitas, Dominic Machi and Mel Nelson.
Special accolades at the 10th annual custodian awards luncheon were announced by Dorothy Peterson, Davis Farm to School chairperson. This year, five outstanding custodians — Stan Hagan, Jim High, Felix Krupa, Lester Lasker and Ike Collins — received a certificate and monetary award.
“The awards luncheon is a time to honor the hard work that these ‘unsung heroes’ do in assisting Yolo Farm to Fork’s Davis Farm to School programs, particularly with gardens, recycling, composting and other behind-the-scenes work,” Peterson said. “Our nonprofit has been honoring these important people for the past 10 years, starting with eight people attending the first year. At this luncheon, approximately 60 people attended.”
The audience enjoyed a festive performance by the local youth ensemble Mariachi Puente, a Davis musical group formed by local music boosters Hiram and Ximena Jackson. (Ximena is also the school district’s Davis Farm to School recycling coordinator.)

Student members of the group come from local high school and junior high campuses and participate in their school music programs — orchestra, band and choir.
A delicious and bountiful assortment of barbecued salmon, chicken wings, several kinds of salads, fresh vegetables, fruit and a variety of desserts were served.

Davis Farm to School, a program of Yolo Farm to Fork, supports local, fresh produce for school lunches, and establishes and sustains edible school gardens, farm-based education and recycling and composting programs. Visit www.yolofarmtofork.org or www.davisfarmtoschool.org.
