BREAKFAST IN THE CLASSROOM
Each morning, the School Nutrition staff in the elementary schools provide and deliver food to the individual classrooms at no cost. Breakfast is offered to all elementary students, but it is the student's choice whether or not to participate. To ensure optimum temperature and freshness, the food items are transported in insulated cooler bags. Breakfast and lunch is served at no cost to all elementary-aged students because of a federal grant. 

HEALTH SCORES
We are proud that our school cafeterias consistently achieve high health inspection scores. To see a list, click School Cafeteria Health ScoresDid you know that health scores are based not only on the kitchen area, but also common areas that are close in proximity to the cafeteria like the bathrooms and dumpsters? School Nutrition Services would like to thank the custodial staff who provide assistance in these areas. The cafeterias are now being inspected by the newly adopted FDA 2009 Food Code. Managers no longer receive 2 bonus points for having a recognized food safety certification.
