On Wednesday, March 20, Whitsons Culinary Group will begin serving sushi at Middletown High School North.  This will continue every Wednesday for the duration of the 2018-19 school year.

Whitsons has partnered with local restaurant Matata Asian Cuisine, located on Route 35 in Middletown, in order to make this possible.

The types of rolls offered will be as follows: California Roll, Cucumber and Avocado Roll and Sweet Potato Cucumber Avocado Roll.  The cost will be $6.50 per roll. Each roll will be served with bottled water, soy sauce, wasabi and ginger.

Students are excited for this unexpected change.
