Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services 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. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods, and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.



As part of the Healthy-Hunger Free Act to improve childhood nutrition, new nutrition standards are being implemented across the country to improve your child's lunch. These standards emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fat-free and low fat milk.
