Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that 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.

PANDEMIC ELECTRONIC BENEFITS TRANSFER (P-EBT)

Does your child receive free or reduced-price school meals during the school year, or you believe you may now be eligible based on a recent income change?
