Nutrition Services 

FeePay    Wellness Program    OnLine Free/Reduce Lunch Application    Menus

Our Purpose:

To offer nutritious meals and snacks at every school building.  Proper nutrition is fundamental for the success of academic programs.  We follow nutrition standards to help fight hunger and obesity.

Fast Facts:
  • School Lunch provides the nutrition children need.
  • Proper nutrition improves a child's behavior, school performance, and overall cognitive development.
  • Properly nourished children more actively participate in the education experience.
  • A healthy eating environment teaches children good nutrition and the elements of a proper diet, which can have positive effects on children's eating habits and physical well-being throughout life.

For more information or links to the research behind the facts listed above, visit News & Links.

Our meals meet the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Nutrition Standards, which requires the following:

  • Age-appropriate calorie limits
  • Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at lease on serving)
  • A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
  • Fat-free or 1% milk
  • More whole grains
  • Less sodium

The new requirements build on the work we have already been doing to provide more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthier main dishes in our cafeteria.  Now is a great time for students to choose a school lunch!  Check out the Menus and Nutrition Info tab to learn more.

Other Nutrition Program Features:

  • Recognizes special events with promotional themes to provide a fun-filled environment for the students.
  • Provides Student Lunch Committees in schools for menu input and taste testing by students.
  • Invites parents and grandparents to join their children for lunch.
  • Serves as a resource for nutrition education materials for the classroom.
  • Includes students in the menu-planning process.
