We are committed to offering variety of nutritional meals to our students every day. The new USDA nutritional guidelines require that schools provide nutritional choices for students. Students must select at least 3 meal components offered in order for their selections to be counted as a full meal and not priced as a la carte items. Choices you can expect to see include an increase in the amount of daily fruit and vegetables offered, half of all grains offered will be whole grain-rich nutrients, fat-free milk will be offered in unflavored/strawberry/chocolate and reduced calories per meal offering for each respective grade level. Seconds on fruits and vegetables are available upon request.
As a department, we are committed to maintaining a positive environment and providing our students with healthy balanced meals every day. Please explore the Food Service webpage links to the left of the page for additional information. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.MEAL VENDING MACHINES
This year we will have meals that students can access through meal account vending machines. Our high school machines will be offering breakfast items; while at Success Academy the machine there will offer breakfast and lunch items. Students will simply enter their student ID numbers two times and follow the brief screen prompts to quickly receive their meal. Instructions will be posted on each of the machines. Breakfast in the machines will be free to all students as well as in our cafés. Lunch in the Success Academy machine will be meal status reflective. After a meal is received, any additional purchases from the machine or the café will be at full purchase price.
On September 2nd at Little Blue Elementary, the students will be sampling another brand of breakfast pizza that is similar to the one that is currently served except the sample has turkey sausage instead of pork. If you have any questions please contact the Food Service Director, Tim Young or the Nutrition Coordinator/Dietitian, Andrea Wilhoit.
