Welcome to Food & Nutrition Services!

Dietary Guidelines Image ButtonOur Mission is to help students achieve academic excellence by balancing good nutrition with physical fitness. To provide low cost, nutritious, well-balanced, and good-tasting meals so that all students will be able to learn at their best.


Our Philosophy is that a child’s comprehensive development depends on a combination of physical, mental and psycho-social factors. The School Nutrition Program in combination with academia, applicable school-based community programs, physical education and adequate activity are important aspects of a child’s physical, mental and psycho-social development. Our successful alliance will achieve the common goal of comprehensive child development including enhanced learning through the facilitated provision of nutrition and physical education, healthy meals, adequate physical activity, and diverse mentoring.


Our Motto is good nutrition is a catalyst for quality teaching and learning! Why? It is because quality teaching and learning depend on good health which is greatly impacted by good nutrition. Hence, we encourage both teacher and student to support and promote our food and nutrition services every day.

The Food and Nutrition Services Department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are ServSafe certified and dedicated to students' health, well-being and their ability to learn. We support lifelong learning by promoting lifelong healthy 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.
