Welcome to Nutrition Services!
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
School District 171 would like to thank the Nez Perce Tribe for the grant funding to finance not only this web site, but start the school garden. The garden will be located behind the Programs Office on Riverside Avenue. This garden will be used in science classes, and to produce fresh food locally for our OWN food services program.
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.
Please visit the National Dairy Council for more nutritional information. They have been a wonderful grant source for us at JSD171.
