The Food Service 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.  Our department’s mission is to provide a variety of nutritious foods students love while keeping fiscal responsibility in mind and adhering to National School Lunch Program regulations.  Please see the District website for more information about the nutrition guidelines we follow.

Lunch menus can be accessed through the District website.  You will find that the lunch menus look a little different this year.  The Nutrislice menu program allows parents and students to filter lunch menus to identify specific allergen-containing foods and to view nutrition information.  A Nutrislice app is available for download by clicking on the app buttons on any lunch menu or by searching the app store.
