Welcome to Food Services!
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
Wareham Food Service will provide healthy, nutritious and appetizing meals that contribute to the well-being and learning ability of students. We will do this with a welcoming, friendly attitude and in a clean and safe dining environment. The Food Service Department is also run in a financially responsible manner which avoids any impact on the District’s general operating budget.
What we do
We serve between 45, 000 and 60,000 meals a month during the school year. At least two thirds of our students receive a breakfast or lunch from us every day.
We provide nutritious snacks for students in organized after-school education or enrichment. During vacations and the summer months our students have the benefit of receiving meals also prepared by our food service department.
As part of the Healthy Hunger-Free Act to improve the nutrition of children new nutrition standards are implemented each year to improve the breakfasts and lunches that we serve. These standards emphasize whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and fat-free and low-fat milk options.
School Meals are planned according to these guidelines and other state and federal guidelines which require foods from specific food groups in specific quantities to be offered to students. Meals must follow the Dietary Guidelines for Americans to:
All food provided by the United States Department of Agriculture to school nutrition programs is grown and farmed from companies in the USA. All of our milk is provided from local massachusetts farmers.
Please see this document that provides indicative nutritional information on the food we serve. We will be updating and improving this information in the months that follow.
