Our District's mission is to create a food program that students and staff will look forward to, enjoy, and find nutritious and satisfying. We will achieve this goal by working towards a program where our food is prepared fresh, from-scratch, in our school kitchens, using locally and regionally sourced ingredients whenever possible. 
All food and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements that 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.
