Food Service Program for Families

The goal of our food service program is to provide healthy enjoyable meals to students that is part of and supports their learning.  Balanced nutrition is a life-time learning goal for children and adults.  We strive to make all of our food options nutrition and fun.

At any time you have a question, please contact the Food Service Director by phone or e-mail.  We’re looking forward to serving your students.

Farm to Fork is done at the High School once a week from September through November ending with the harvest feast (Thanksgiving meal). Fruits and vegetables on the menu will be from local farms.

Recipe of the Month is featured in the High School. This item will be labeled on the menu. This is just our way of introducing new foods and finding new items that the children like so we can start offering them more.

A la carte:

These items are open to students in 1st grade through 12th grade. If you would like to put limits on your student’s account, send in a written notice to the cafeteria. Please be specific. Notices that contain “one snack per week” are not possible to enforce; please specify which day you would like your child to be allowed to purchase a la carte items.
