Going Green


Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued a new rule about substitutions for milk for students who do not have disabilities. The rule no longer allows us to substitute bottled water or fruit juice for milk in the school meal for students that do not have disabilities. We offer Lactaid milk as a substitute product in all schools within our district, for students whose parent or guardian request it. Lactaid milk is cow’s milk with the milk sugar (lactose) broken down so it is easier for most people with lactose intolerance to digest. Lactaid milk is generally not appropriate for students who are allergic to milk or cannot drink milk due to cultural, ethnic, or religious reasons. Non disabled students who cannot drink milk or Lactaid milk can choose to decline the milk in their school meal and take the juice that is offered with the meal and/or water from the tap/fountain to drink. If a student’s physician provides a medical statement (Medical Plan of Care for Food Services) that states a student has a disabling disability such as a severe allergy, we will continue to be able to provide the beverage substitution requested on the medical statement.
