Child Nutrition Services

We Feed The Future

The Child Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to health and well-being so our students can 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. Due to the USDA Free Meals for All Waiver, we will not be accepting free and reduced applications.

News

Did you hear the good news? All children receive FREE complete meals through June 2022! A complete meal consists of an entree and a fruit or vegetable. Milk and juice may be purchased for $.50. Beginning August 11th we will return to full-service meal operations along with the return of our great, all-you-can-eat salad bar with fresh fruits and vegetables daily.

Setup a student meal account with www.schoolcafe.com so your student can make easy a la carte snack purchases.
