About Nutrition Services

Serving 30,000 Daily

We provide approximately 30,000 nutritious meals every day to students and staff. We participate in the National School Lunch Program and the National Breakfast Program (at select sites).  We also provide Nutrition Breaks in select elementary schools.  Please check with your school to see if they participate.

School meals are important to your child because they help develop sound nutritional habits by exposing students to a variety of foods. We offer many food choices and provide healthful fruits and vegetables daily. In addition, the well-nourished student has better attendance, is more attentive, better behaved and has an increased energy level. All of these elements are tied to academic success.

School Meals are Safe

Food safety is our first and foremost concern. We have implemented a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point Program throughout the District to reduce the chance of a food-borne illness event. Temperatures of all food products are monitored throughout production and service.

School Meals are Nutritious

School meals contain 30 percent or less of total calories from fat, less than 10% total calories from saturated fat, 35% sugar and contain at least one third of the RDAs for protein, Vitamins A and C, Iron, Calcium and calories.

School Meals are Balanced

Every day, students choose their meals from a variety of fresh fruits and fresh vegetables, whole-grain breads and cereals, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products.  Each school has a Harvest Bar which features a variety of fresh produce in season.
