Our vision is a partnership among students, staff, school, family, and the community in offering access to and providing attractively presented nutritious meals at the lowest possible price.
The goal of the department is to maintain high standards and accountability, while consistently exceeding the expectations of our families.
Good nutrition is key to a healthful life. Studies show that students who are well nourished have increased attendance, better grades, and are able to concentrate and perform at higher standards.
