Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.

All meals, foods and beverages are prepared and served by qualified child nutrition professionals. We provide students with access to a variety of fresh and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

We have put considerable efforts into enhancing the flavor and nutritional benefits of our meals. 

 

Enjoy meals that are chef-designed and globally inspired. 

 

Key enhancements include increasing the availability of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free and low-fat fluid milk in our meals.  Vegetarian and vegan options are available to students daily at junior high and high schools and upon advanced request at elementary schools.

 

We are also reducing the levels of sodium and saturated fat and have eliminated added trans-fat in meals.  We do not supersize our meals, but instead strive to meet the nutrition needs of students within their age-specific calorie requirements.

 

Try our new Mediterranean Falafel Platter available at junior high and high schools!  

These tasty falafels are served with flatbread, tabbouleh and a creamy tzatziki sauce.

 

SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS

In accordance with USDA Regulation 7 CFR Part 15b, substitutions and modifications in school meals for children whose disabilities restrict their diets can be requested.  Each special dietary request must be supported by a statement explaining the requested food substitution and must be signed by a recognized medical authority.  For more information, click here.  

MEAL SUBSTITUTIONS FOR MEDICAL OR SPECIAL DIETARY REASONS

USDA Regulation 7 CFR Part 15b requires substitutions or modifications in school meals for children whose disabilities restrict their diets. A child with a disability must be provided substitutions in foods when that need is supported by a signed statement from a licensed physician.


IN CASES OF FOOD ALLERGY

Generally, children with food allergies or intolerances do not have a disability as defined under either Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act or Part B of IDEA, and the school food service may, but is not required to, make food substitutions for them.  However, when in the licensed physician’s assessment, food allergies may result in severe, life-threatening (anaphylactic) reactions, the child’s condition would meet the definition of “disability”, and the substitutions prescribed by the licensed physician must be made.

School food service may make food substitutions, at their discretion, for individual children who do not have a disability, but who are medically certified as having a special medical or dietary need.  Such determinations are only made on a case-by-case basis.  This provision covers those children who have food intolerances or allergies, but do not have life-threatening reactions (anaphylactic reactions) when exposed to the food(s) to which they have problems.

Medical Statement for Children with Special Dietary Needs

Each special dietary request must be supported by a statement explaining the requested food substitution and must be signed by a recognized medical authority. The Medical Statement must include:

  • An identification of the medical or other special dietary condition which restricts the child’s diet;
  • The food or foods to be omitted from the child’s diet; and
  • The food or choice of foods to be substituted.

 

If we do not receive a medical statement from a recognized medical authority, your child will receive a regular lunch tray.
