    Our priority is that every child is nourished and ready to learn. Diet has a direct and lasting impact on our students' physical and mental health, and our healthy meals are an opportunity to enhance their academic success. We spend time each week to ensure our menus meet the dietary guidelines. Please contact the director if you have questions or ideas for improvement. You are always welcome to join your child for a meal at school.

    School Meals

    Our schools serve breakfast and lunch, including nutritious meat and vegetarian dishes. A secure online payment system gives parents a convenient location to check meal account balances and pay online. For families who qualify, we offer free and reduced-price options.

    Programs and Resources

    Community partners and businesses help promote healthy options in our schools. We buy direct from local farmers when possible, and welcome experts into our schools to educate students on making healthy choices.
