Waygu Beef Ends Up on Kansas High School’s Menu

When you think about cafeteria food, the first thing that doesn’t mind would be high-quality cuts of beef. A high school in Kansas will be getting a new food option on its lunch menu: Waygu beef.

Moving forward, students attending Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, Kansas, will be getting Waygu beef added to their school’s lunch menu after it was announced that Auburn-Washburn Unified School District 437 would be working with Manhattan-based Booth Creek Wagyu to give premium nutrition to students.

Waygu beef is preferred because of its high-degree of marbling, which gives it a richer texture and flavor. The meat comes partially from Japanese Beef Cattle, which is extremely rare in America.

Food services supervisor Stan Vallis said that the school district is getting the beef for an “extremely affordable” price. He also noted that it’s quite rare for students to have “an entree, let alone this quality of beef.”

“The owner of the company values doing business with schools, and he wants to give back to the community, and we’re getting such a good price,” Vallis said. “It’s extremely affordable and it’s high-quality product.”
