Department Overview

The School Nutrition department has many challenges to face each day.  One of the most important is the growing problem with childhood obesity and the role we play in trying to teach the students how to make healthy food choices.  The food products we  serve always meet or exceed our governing agency the United States Department of Agriculture's requirements based on the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2012.

With the overwhelming reports in the past few years of the increase of childhood diseases such as diabetes that are linked to childhood obesity we felt we needed to take our school lunches a step further.  So after much discussion and planning at the beginning of the 2004-2005 school year we began offering additional healthy entrées to every student at every grade level for lunch and breakfast.  At lunch students have a choice of a large salad that includes meat and/or cheese and grain servings; sandwiches with low fat meat on whole grain bread, white or sub buns; along with the daily choices at lunch.  The student may choose any one of the entrées offered.  All entrées meet or exceed the requirements set forth by USDA.

The cafeteria in each school also has three fruits and three vegetables to choose from each day and one fruit must be a fresh fruit.  Students are required to choose a minimum of one fruit or one vegetable for lunch along with their protein, milk and grain item offered.

The School Nutrition Department would like to invite all parents to have lunch with their child and sample the nutritious and exciting choices available each day.
