Who Are We
Our team of food and nutrition professionals support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition practices. We are dedicated to students' health, well-being.
The meals, food and beverages sold/served at each of the schools meet state and federal requirements, which are based on the National School Lunch Program Dietary Guidelines. Our program offers fresh fruit and vegetables with all of our meals providing access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
BREAKFAST AND LUNCH INFORMATION
Eating a healthy breakfast before starting the school day is linked to improved concentration, better test scores, increased energy and a higher intake of vitamins and minerals. Breakfast is especially important for young students whose brains use up about half of the body’s energy.
Eating lunch is important because it provides nourishment to the body and brain and reduces stress. Lunch provides a break from the activities of the day and gives energy for the afternoon. If your child does not consume foods offered at school, see Back to School Fuel for inspiration on preparing healthy lunches and snack ideas also check out choose my plate.
Breakfast and lunch options differ at certain grade levels. All of our school Cafeterias follow the Offer Vs Serve menu style. Four components are offered each morning for breakfast: Grain, fruit or vegetable, milk and a food item from the Meat and Meat Alternate component, or one additional food item from the Fruit and Vegetable component or Grains component. Students will be encouraged to select all components to create a reimbursable meal.
Five components are offered daily as the main Lunch: meat/meat alternate, vegetable, grain, fruit and milk. We will encourage students to take all of the components they need only take 3 with 1 being a fruit or vegetable to make it a reimbursable lunch. Please note Free and reduced price meals must be reimbursable meals.
Students can choose what they like and feel they will eat (A La Carte) at meal times and be charged accordingly if the account is in good standing. Charging of a La Cart will not be allowed (please see district charging policy).
