Indianapolis private school apologizes for soul food menu

INDIANAPOLIS – A private Indianapolis school is apologizing for a lunch menu toasting Black History Month that featured fried chicken, collard greens and a soul food bar.

Park Tudor School apologized in a statement Thursday for Wednesday’s lunch menu that sparked a social media outcry over reinforcing negative stereotypes.

The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1hsYD5a) the private school and college preparatory academy served fried chicken, collard greens and other items along with a soul food bar on Wednesday for a lunch menu titled “Celebrate Black History Month.”

The school said in its apology that the lunch menu “was an offensive and misguided attempt by our foodservice provider to celebrate Black History Month.”

The school’s statement said it recognizes “the distress and hurt feelings this has caused within our entire community.”
