The Food and Nutrition Department has five registered
dietitians on staff. Like you, we want all children to
have the nutrition they need to be fit, healthy, and ready
for success. We are very proud of the strides we have taken
to improve our meals over the years. Consistent with Choose
My Plate messages, students can enjoy whole grains, low-fat dairy,
and fresh fruits and vegetables every day. In addition, all of our
food offerings are trans fat free.
Annual cafeteria promotions include:
National Fruits and Vegetables Month (September)
National School Lunch Week (October)
National Farm to School Month (October)
3 Every Day of Dairy Month (January)
National School Breakfast Week (March)
National Nutrition Month (March)

Each school has a local wellness plan and school health
advisory committee. Schools engage in wellness activities
for both students and staff. During the 2014-2015 school year,
the compliance for the Wellness Plan Action Items was 99% for all
details pertaining to Wellness Action Item compliance. To find out more about
what is going on at your school, contact the local school wellness representative.
