The Child Nutrition Program has revamped the menu to meet the new Federal Nutritional Guidelines for school meals. So if you are looking for greasy, fat-laden foods, you won't find them in school lunch. Calories are being counted while meat and grain portions are being closely monitored. Students are required to choose fruits and vegetables to make a reimbursable meal this year. Our "Fresh & Local" approach will make it easy for students to "Fill their Tray the Healthy Way".

We have incorporated a color dot system which corresponds with the myplate nutritional education each child receives in the classroom. It is our hope that through repetition, students will learn to make healthy selections at lunch time and beyond. Click here to view, "How Does My Child Make a Meal?"

We are super excited to announce that we have a new partnership with Project Share and Buttonwood Farm to supply our program with fresh, locally grown produce. We are transforming the fresh produce into fabulous recipes like chicken and vegetable stir-fry, zucchini ribbon salad, bean and corn fiesta and mediterranean couscous salad. We are working with Chefs to improve our skills to properly handle, cut and prepare all the fresh flavors we are incorporating into the student meals.

Our daily menu selections include fresh fruits and 100% juice as well as fresh, steamed and roasted vegetables. More than half of our grains, pasta and breads are 51% whole grains. We combined both bold and subtle flavors utilizing fresh herbs, spices and ingredients to teach students that eating healthy can be fun and delicious! Please encourage your children to try new items that are on the menu and help us to lay a solid foundation for healthy habits for our next generation!

We also offer a Gluten-Free selection for students who need this option (please submit a medial form). Soy milk is available for purchase at all buildings for $1.25.
