 Food Myths and The Real Scoop!!!
  • Lunch menus meet or exceed the Healthier US school challenge Gold Aware Guidelines.
  • To help increase fiber, whole wheat and whole grain breads are used, including many breakfast items.
  • To help students consume enough calcium, we offer a choice of nonfat or low fat milk. Milk does not contain high corn fructose syrup.

  • To encourage students to eat more fruits and vegetables we offer a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. We use organic produce when possible. Canned fruit is packed in juice. The produce of the month features a different fruit or vegetable monthly.
