What We Do
We are forward-thinking and forward-acting in regard to how we are setting the standards for the meals served to our students.

  • Maintain the highest nutritional nutrient standards and quality for school meals.
  • Continuously maintain the directives of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
  • Increase the variety, visibility, and accessibility of unprocessed fresh fruit and vegetables whenever possible.
  • Offer local food choices whenever possible.
  • Continue to provide at least one vegetarian option at each meal in the school meal program.
  • Incorporate student and parent input with the nutritional improvements.
