The Nutrition Services Department is made up of a team of 9 food service professionals in four kitchens who are committed to providing high quality meals to students at an affordable price to families.

Meals at No Cost
For the 2021-22 School Year, ALL students are eligible to receive 1 Breakfast and 1 Lunch Meal each school day at NO COST. No application for this is necessary. For more information, see the FAQ's on the right. Please note: any meal pricing listed on our page for this school year is ONLY applicable to a la carte items, adult meals or second meals for students. Students must take a complete meal in order for the meal to be no cost. If a student wishes to take only certain parts of the meal such as only the milk, or only the entree, a la carte pricing will apply. 


 
The Department of Nutrition Services strictly adheres to the USDA mandates and regulations regarding the sale of food items to children in schools. We offer chef salads, fresh fruits, and veggies at every school, every day. We serve education every day by promoting healthy habits and nutrition.
