Food Service

The Food Service Department is looking forward to the 2023-2024 school year and continuing its mission to provide the students in our community with nutritious and delicious meals. The monthly breakfast, lunch and snack menus are reviewed by multiple members of the Food Service team including our Registered Dietitian to ensure that we are providing the proper nutrients, calories and a variety of fruits and vegetables. All of the menu items provided follow the USDA federal guidelines of the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs. Under these regulations, our program provides the required components including whole grains, fruits, vegetables, milk, and lean protein. All food items are whole grain and fiber rich, lower in sodium and saturated fat. Our district is part of the Community Eligibility Provision, under which all students receive a reimbursable breakfast, lunch and snack free of charge.
