Frankfort Cafeterias to Serve Lean Cuisine
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Lean Cuisine, a healthy and convenient lunchtime favorite, will soon be available in three Frankfort cafeterias run by the Department of Parks.
A daily Lean Cuisine special will be offered for $3.29 every day for the next six months as part of the Commerce Cabinet’s Health and Wellness initiative. Each Lean Cuisine item will be served with a starch side dish. The revolving menu will consist of such popular choices as glazed chicken, chicken primavera, chipotle chicken, steak portobello and vegetable lasagna, to name a few. The Lean Cuisine meals will be served hot just like other entrees.
“We believe these entrees will be popular with our customers,” said John Kington, deputy commissioner. “Lean Cuisine meals are both tasty and healthy.”
During the initial trial period, each person who orders a Lean Cuisine meal will be entered into a drawing for an iPod. If the pilot program proves popular, Lean Cuisine dishes could be added as a regular menu item, said Kington.
The Frankfort cafeterias are located at the Transportation Cabinet building, the Health and Family Services Cabinet building, and the Capitol Annex.
