Welcome to the Nutrition Service Department!
Important message from the Food Service Director.
Due to an issue with our primary food distributor, we expect there will be significant changes to all school menus now through the end of October. We are working to fix these issues as quickly as possible and hope to have them resolved soon. In the meantime, should you need to verify the lunch options being offered, we strongly encourage you to contact the kitchen lead at your child's school site. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
