Exciting things are happening in Southwest Local School Cafeterias where our goal is “GREAT NUTRITION AT A GREAT PRICE”! Our elementary cafeterias offer 2 fruits and 3 vegetables EVERYDAY at lunch. 2 fruits are offered daily for breakfast. A fresh vegetable is also included EVERYDAY in addition to the fresh salad that has been standard fare for years. Salad dressing pumps have been eliminated to make room for portion controlled packets. All of our sandwich bread, and round buns are whole grain white or wheat. Other whole grain menu items contain at least 51% whole grains. A freshly made chef salad with ham, turkey, or chicken and cheese is one of 6 daily entrée choices (along with turkey sandwich, turkey hot dog on bun, yogurt/cheese/pepperoni/cracker lunchables, peanut butter and jelly on wheat or whole grain white bread and of course the entrée of the day on the menu). Check out our menu! The elementary lunch price is $1.60. Don’t forget our convenient and affordable elementary breakfast served daily for $.95! Free or Reduced prices apply to those who qualify.
We strongly encourage all High School and Junior School students to "MAKE IT A MEAL". We are able to offer significant savings (almost 40% over Ala Carte pricing) to students who “MAKE IT A MEAL” at lunch and breakfast. A lunch consists of ANY entrée and a milk along with a trip to our self serve fruit and vegetable bar OR choose from many fruit and vegetable side options from our self serve cases. We also offer a "Fresh Fare" rotating entree, which has made-to-order options such as "make it Bold, Make it Buffalo", Mexican Madness", Make it Fresh, Make it Flatbread (pizza)" as well as several other choices. Breakfast is served daily at the High School and Junior School with lots of great entrée choices as well. We are encouraging students to choose the most well rounded lunch (or breakfast) at the most economical price! “MAKE IT A MEAL” IT’S THE BEST DEAL!
Our snack options are nutritious as well! All snack options meet the Alliance for a Healthier Generation guidelines. Only snacks that meet certain criteria are offered in our elementary schools, High School and Junior School. Our basic message to all students is “CHOOSE THE SNACKS THAT LOVE YOU BACK!”.
