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 their health and nutrition needs.

The National School Lunch and National School Breakfast Programs are federally funded to assist schools in providing nutritious breakfasts and lunches to school children, and are open to all enrolled students. Free meals are provided to all students who qualify for benefits according to specified family size and income requirements. In addition, we now provide suppers and snacks to students participating in the Afterschool Programs. The programs provide meals that contain 1/3 of the students's Recommended Dietary Allowance of nutrients.
