Providing high quality, nutritious choices to students

Our school district provides healthy meals each day. For the 2022-2023 school year, breakfast and lunch will return to fee based. Meals will no longer be universally free. However, to qualify for free or reduced meals and other school benefits, a current Application for Educational Benefits must be completed each year. You can find out more in the Meal Assistance tab.

We use MealViewer, an interactive menu that allows students and families to easily see nutrition (calories, fat, carbohydrates, etc.) and allergy information for meals served at school each day. In addition, families can create free MealViewer profiles for their students to better monitor dietary restrictions, identify food allergies, and more. Contact Colleen Fairbanks with questions about MealViewer.
