Franchesca Bland

Giant Staff Member of the Month

From themed foods, elementary cooking competitions to tasty school lunches and even district catered meals, our Goose Creek CISD chef, Franchesca Bland, is our Giant Staff Member of the Month for February 2021. When Chef Bland was in elementary school, she remembers arguing for control of the television with her two sisters. They wanted sitcoms and cartoons; Franchesca wanted to watch cooking shows. Her favorites were "Great Chefs: Great Cities" and "Cooking Live with Sandra Moulton." Now, Chef Bland leads the district in creating excellent meals for our students and staff. She has completely changed the game in food services for Goose Creek CISD. Chef Bland is described as creative and relentless in the pursuit of quality food for children. She never backs down from a challenge, and cooking is her absolute passion. Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital sponsors the Giant Staff Member of the Month.
