Lucinda Darby Hunger Hero

Kris Larsen

Gilbert Intermediate School, Gilbert, IA

Miss Kris is the cook captain at Gilbert Intermediate School. Kris has made it a priority to build relationships with her students and is always a friendly face to her kids.

Kris embraced the idea of student kitchen helpers and works well with the teaching and office staff to acknowledge that her kids are leaders! She empowered the kids to help set up the TigerTeria (their cafeteria) and demonstrated patience while showing them how to clean up, refill condiment bottles, and more!

Kris is more than a Cook Captain. Kris is a leader who has empowered those around her to be leaders. The kids love waving as she jams out to music between breakfast and lunch serves. They always know that they will get a friendly smile and hug from Miss Kris!!  Gilbert Intermediate is blessed to have Miss Kris advocating for our kids and serving breakfast and lunch to 350 kids!!

For her service, Miss Kris is a Tyson K-12 Hunger Hero.
