    The USDA has extended FREE meals for all students until June 30, 2022

    Good nutrition and school meals go hand in hand!  The Nutrition Services Department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students’ health, well-being and their ability to learn.  We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

    Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.        

    Federal guidelines require us to offer a minimum of 4 breakfast items:
    Milk, Fruit, Juice and Whole Grains. (Protein options can be offered in place of grains.) We offer a variety of different items daily, to choose from.

    Students must take three or four items, one being fruit or juice, to qualify as a school breakfast.

    Lunch guidelines require us to offer 5 components (milk, fruit, vegetable,whole grains and protein). Students must take a minimum of three components. One of which must be a fruit or a vegetable.

    Special meal accommodations can be made with a medical note from a doctor’s office.  Kept on file stating the allergy/disability and the substitution.
