Welcome to Nutrition Services!

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

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 the health and nutrition needs of students.

Welcome to Hingham Food Service. We strive for balance in our program of health, fun, and yumminess. We offer balanced meals to the children in Hingham in a variety of ways. Some favorites amongst the students are the pretzel meal, brunch for lunch and chicken nuggets are always a big hit at any level.

Our program is an extension of the healthy lifestyle foundation that students get at home. Food service reinforces what a balanced meal looks, smells and tastes like. On a weekly basis, students are served a rainbow of produce orange, dark green and legumes which come in a variety of colors can be seen on every menu every week. All the grains served in Food service are whole grain rich including the breading on the nuggets. Food service uses healthy cooking methods such as baking, roasting and steaming nothing is ever fried. Fresh whole fruit is always an option for students. So long as a student purchases a school lunch they are always welcome to come back for seconds on fruits and vegetables. Students can even purchase fruit or vegetables separately for $.50. We encourage students to take and try it all.
