ALL DISTRICT STUDENTS MAY RECEIVE FREE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH FOR THE 21-22 SCHOOL YEAR, REGARDLESS OF FINANCIAL STATUS.

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.
 

In partnership with United Way and Interfaith Food Ministry, we are continuing the NU on-campus Food Pantry to help connect families with food. Due to safety protocols, we have pre-packaged grocery bags of food available. You can shop from our shelves. The Food Pantry is located on the NU Campus in G-5 and is open on Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30. Please email June Gilfillan at jgilfillan@njuhsd.com  if you would like to set up a different time to come pick up food if needed.
