    SCHOOL FOOD SERVICE

    We understand the critical role that wholesome eating plays in the educational process and the health of growing bodies at every stage of development. Our cooks use wholesome ingredients to freshly prepare our food, paying particular attention to the use of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats and healthy snacks. Nutritional breakfasts and lunches are available daily in all schools and are consistent with the dietary guidelines

    Our monthly menus not only feature nutritional messages, but also highlight a special fruit or vegetable of the month to encourage students to try new healthy choices.

    FOOD ALLERGY/ STUDENT SAFETY INFORMATION

    If you have a student with a serious food allergy that is eating from the cafeteria, please contact your building nurse and the food service department for assistance to discuss the "food allergy procedure" and safety of our children. Communication is key and its crucial that we work closely to meet the needs of our students with food allergies.

    The government requires manufactures to list the top eight allergens on the label if it is in the food. It is not mandated for food plants to put information on the label regarding a potential risk for cross contamination if multiple allergens such as soy and wheat are utilized on the production lines. As a courtesy some companies do list this information.
