Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand. The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Food and beverages sold or served at school meet the nutrition recommendations of the U.S. Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a diverse selection of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

HHFKA & SMART SNACK! What do these mean? Well, HHFKA aka the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010, or HHFKA for short, outlines all rules and regulations we must follow within the guidelines of both the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program. This year all bread and breaded items, including tortillas and bagels, are whole grain or whole grain rich, meaning they are 51% whole grain; sodium levels in all meals have been reduced for both breakfast and lunch by grade level; less sugar and even more fresh fruit and vegetable options will be offered.
Every student, regardless of age or grade is required to take no less than ½ cup fruit and/or vegetables daily at both Breakfast and Lunch.
