Nutrition Services

It’s proven when kids eat a well-nourished meal they learn better and play harder. That’s why we concentrate on serving fresh, nutritious and tasty choices. 

We prepare foods in our own school kitchens and buy local produce, milk and whole grain breads. We’ve added many new items to our menu in the past few years. Join us for breakfast and lunch at one of our buildings; we look forward to serving you!

Important Nutrition Services Information

Student Meal Accounts

Every student is issued a meal account accessed by a PIN number they use to purchase meals. It is the responsibility of the student’s parent/guardian to keep adequate funds in the account for purchases. Nutrition Services provides weekly low funds reminders via a caller system, emails and letters of notification to families.

Student Meal Payments

Payment may be made directly at the school to the school kitchen manager or click here to pay by credit card through the Campus Parent Portal website. 

  • Cash is not preferred due to the inability to trace payments
