Our Child Nutrition Team serves almost two million meals a year between breakfast and lunch. The team is investing their time in new and improved products to ensure we are offering items students enjoy. A taste testing method is used before each introduction, and the team is working to expand breakfast in the classroom and meal carts. While staying within the requirements of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food & Nutrition Service, the team works hard to innovate and update our menus based on input from our students.
