Attention

ALL FOOD SERVED MEETS THE USDA GUIDELINES AND THE GUIDELINES OF HEALTHY PEOPLE 2020

NEW

These new guidelines are proven to be healthier for all students. They fit the guidelines in Healthy People 2020 due to how well we picked out each item and bake it instead of frying the item. The school food items that are chosen will have the students eating the food to feel energized and ready to power through the day having had a healthy breakfast and lunch.
