    Welcome to Food Services!

    Good nutrition and learning go hand-in-hand.

    The Food Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals who 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.
