  • A Message from the Executive Director

  • Hungry children cannot learn. That is why nutrition at school plays a key role in education and learning. The Food & Child Nutrition Services staff is committed to making sure every scholar has the proper nutrition so they can learn and achieve to their fullest potential.
     
    Catering nutritious meals to our scholars is our commitment. We understand that well-nourished children are better equipped to learn. Providing healthy food and nutrition education are the key ingredients in educating students to make choices that will develop into life-long healthy eating habits.
     
    If you have not already done so, please take a look at our new menu, as we have made a lot of changes! As we try new items, new recipes, and new menus, we will continue to make changes as needed. If your scholar likes an item, please have him/her tell the cafeteria staff. Their choices and voice drive what products we place on the menu.
     
    I would be remiss if I did not mention that the true stars in this process are the Food & Child Nutrition Services staff who have the complex task of serving the 40,000 scholars daily. Their efforts are never sufficiently recognized.
     
    Please visit our website often to keep updated on new and exciting changes.
     
    Sincerely,
