About Us

The mission of the Division of Food and Nutrition Services is to provide a variety of appealing, quality, nutritious meals in a cost effective and efficient operation. Dedicated employees empowered to promote success for every student; serve meals in an innovative learning environment, respectful of each student's needs and differences.

The Division of Food and Nutrition Services is proud to be a vital link in the “Success for Every Student” program. Our philosophy is that appropriate combinations, balance, careful selections and preparation of individual food items play equally important roles in our menu planning process. Menus and food specifications are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Our menus are planned by licensed, registered dietitians and analyzed to ensure maintenance of dietary goals. Purchased foods, recipe ingredients and preparation techniques are reviewed carefully so that menus are in compliance with nutritional guidelines.
