Child Nutrition Program


The primary objective of the child nutrition program is to make available to every student a nutritious, well-prepared and attractive lunch every day. A complete breakfast is offered every morning from 7:15 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. at all schools. Service times will vary according to each school's operational hours.

The Child Nutrition Department operates 19 cafeteria sites and serves approximately 6700 lunches and 4,000 breakfasts each day. The meals provided are in compliance with USDA Regulations and meet the school meal initiative requirement. All meals meet the standards as provided in federal, state, and local laws and/or rules and regulations. We are now following the Meal Pattern. Menu patterns are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and amounts of sugar, sodium, and fat are controlled.
