Food and Nutrition Services

 

Our Mission/Vision 

Food and Nutrition Services is committed to providing the opportunity for every child to eat a well-balanced and nutritious meal daily. In advocating student achievement, our aspiration is to develop life-long eating habits that promote health and wellness through proper nutrition. 

The United States Department of Agriculture’s research indicates that children who participate in the National School Breakfast & Lunch Program have superior nutritional intakes compared to those who bring lunch from home or otherwise do not participate. In addition, studies show that proper nutrition improves a child’s behavior, school performance, and cognitive abilities. 

We serve approximately 2.3 million meals each year for $2.50 or less while generating our own revenue to reinvest to the program.  Our service to the community prepares children to be engaged students. 

By combining culinary and nutrition talents, our goals are to:

  • Prevent hunger by providing attractive nourishing meals in a welcoming atmosphere
  • Contribute to student success
  • Offer nutrition education to students, employees, and the community
  • Maintain a safe and clean environment
