Hi, I came across your website with links to multiple recipes from cafeterias. 
I realize that you have links for several sloppy joe recipes and it would make 
sense that the one for LAUSD is similar, if not the same. I shall probably work 
my way through the various recipes, but if you have a way to locate the one for 
Pasadena Unified School District, I would be very grateful. I've done my own 
searches and can't find one that specifically comes from PUSD. Perhaps you have 
better sources than I.


I searched for, but could not locate, a recipe for sloppy joes from Pasadena Unified School District, nor could I locate one that said it was from LAUSD. I do have several sloppy joe recipes from school cafeterias, but none form Pasadena or L.A. I have several LAUSD recipes, but none for sloppy joes from there.

If you can find a message board that is specifically aimed at former students of your school or the PUSD, then posting on that board might bring success. A thorough search might include searching the archives of local Pasadena newspapers, although that would likely require a subscription to one of the newspaper archive sites or a trip to the Pasadena library and searching the microfilmed archives of the local newspaper.

I will post this for reader input.
