Breakfast and Lunch is offered to our students at no cost, district wide. We recognize that offering breakfast to all students has many benefits for the school, the student and the parent. These benefits include:
Our lunches consist of an entrée item and a choice of fruit, vegetable, and milk. We also offer alternative lunches to those that may not choose what is on the menu for the day. In our Middle School and High School we offer a number of additional options as a way to please the increasingly diverse eating habits of today’s young adults.
We offer lunch every day to about 3000 students and staff using a system called Offer Versus Serve. Offer Versus Serve requires that we offer a minimum number of choices (5), one from each food category (bread, meat/meat alternate, fruit, vegetable, and milk) and have the student choose a minimum number (3) for their lunch. Studies show that if the student is able to choose what they want, they will be more likely to eat it and thus get a healthy, balanced meal.
