Welcome

You may have heard the news -- school nutrition is changing! The United States Department of Agriculture has made some of the most sweeping changes to the school nutrition program in more than 15 years.

Wondering how these changes will impact you and your children?

Here is what you can expect:

More fruits and vegetables.
Bigger servings and a wider variety of fresh, canned and frozen fruits and veggies. Look for a rainbow of colors including red/orange and dark green veggies.

A weekly serving of beans, pea or legumes.
And we're not talking about green beans. Look for black beans, chickpeas, edamame and many others!

Whole grain rich breads.
School Year 2013/14 sees the 50% whole grain requirement continuing in the lunch program and now added to our breakfast program.    

 

For SY 2013/14 students are still required to take either a fruit or a vegetable as a part of their full lunch.


Please check back often for more information and updates. Nutritional information for elementary and middle school meals will be posted soon.
