Enjoy your dining out experience in Lubbock this week, as no restaurants are low performers in Food For Thought. However, restaurants aren't the only places health inspectors go. NewsChannel 11's Kealey McIntire has this week's Food For Thought.

Each week, inspectors go into the kitchens where your children eat lunch, the school cafeteria. This week, one school is definitely making top grades.
The sounds of the lunch bell means it's 'go time' for Lubbock Independent School District Food Services Director Kevin Fenton and 350 cafeteria district-wide employees. Plus, when you serve 36,000 meals a day at 54 campuses, keeping a clean kitchen is a big task.
"We hold in our hands the safety of a whole lot of children day in and day out and we take that very seriously," said Fenton.
It's that mentality that earns Ballenger Head Start at 1110 40th Street a perfect score.
"It's a great feeling," says Fenton. "A lot of pride, not just pride for me, but pride for the hard work that's displayed by the cafeteria staff day in and day out."
Fenton says the perfect score sets the tone for everyday expectations. "These perfect scores don't just happen. They earn those perfect scores and they set us our goals day in and day out because we take a lot of pride in the safety of our customers."
Fenton wants to thank the entire food services staff at Ballenger for their hard work.
