On Monday, December 9, I announced that FUSIAN sushi will be coming to the Seven Hills cafeteria. I was first made aware FUSIAN a few months ago when Emma Uible (12) wrote a review of the restaurant on Canvass. I was prompted to look into the restaurant and I discovered that FUSIAN has a program that sells their product in schools. I emailed the FUSIAN manager with a list of reasons why Seven Hills would be an ideal place to sell their product, and the manager replied with enthusiasm. Since then, I have served as a means of communication between the FUSIAN management and Robert Horne, the business manager here at Seven Hills, to try and get sushi in the School cafeteria.
FUSIAN’s Sushi in Schools program, in its fourth year of operation, serves eleven schools in the Cincinnati and Dayton areas. Seven Hills will be the twelfth school in the program. Although the number of selling days, the products sold, and the prices vary by school, the Seven Hills cafeteria will sell non-shellfish items every Monday beginning January 6, 2014. This means that every meat except for shrimp, crab mix, and crab stick will be marketed for sale. FUSIAN employees will sell the sushi in the side lunch line, in place of the salad bar. Cash will not be necessary to purchase the sushi, and instead student and faculty ID cards can be used instead.
Once the last steps of the deal are finalized, it is likely that FUSIAN employees will speak at an all-school assembly explaining the Sushi in Schools project. In the meantime, the countdown to January 6th begins.
