THE BEST CHOICE TO LEARN, WORK, LEAD

Nutrition Services Overview

The nutrition services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals who are dedicated to student health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. We're available for visits from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Help with processing a free-and-reduced application is available from 8 a.m. to noon.

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.
 
Nutrition departments are regulated by the federal government and part of that regulation is to operate as a self-funded enterprise within a school district. This means that nutrition services does not take any tax-payer’s funds from the district to operate the meal programs.
