Nutrition Secrets

All of the food prepared for the schools is made by Food Service staff that have been trained through the National Restaurant Association ServSafe Course. We value and believe in providing high quality, safe, and tasty food to all students. We have numerous secret recipes to provide nutrition and promote healthy eating which include:

  • Meat in entrees is often turkey based, which are lower in fat
  • A variety of fruits and vegetables are provided each day to all students K-12
  • A choice of fat-free (skim) milk is offered to all students K-12
  • Breakfast breads and all other grains are whole grain rich
  • Foods are prepared by cooking, baking, or steaming, a healthy alternative to deep frying
