Welcome to Food Services!

Our Food Services Department is made up of a great team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to student’s health, well-being, and their ability to learn because we know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

We are responsible for planning and preparing breakfast and lunch for students, faculty, and district employees. Meals, food, 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 nutritional needs of students. Our services include breakfast, lunch, after-school snacks, a la carte sales, and catering.
