Going Green


Breakfast MenuBreakfast is offered in all Colonial Schools for no cost to ALL students. All elementary students eat breakfast in their classroom allowing them more time to eat their whole meal and the ability to sit with peers. Secondary students will use the school cafeterias for breakfast service, certain middle school grades may offer a grab and go service allowing students to eat breakfast in their classroom.

Lunch is offered in most schools for no cost to ALL students, (Gunning Bedford and William Penn must continue to use Meal Benefit Forms, which can be found at the bottom of the page). All lunches will be eaten in the school cafeteria. Students have option to select their lunch meal from a variety of offerings. All meals served meet all federal USDA regulations as part of the National School Lunch Program.

In addition to lunches we have a variety of healthy a la carte snacks that meet the wellness policy guidelines for a healthy snack; popcorn, pretzels, rice krispie bars and 100% fruit juices, and low fat milk. Nutrition Services also offers bagged lunches for field trips with advanced notice to the cafeteria manager.
