Nutrition Services at a Glance


The Nutrition Services Department is responsible for the operation of the school lunch and breakfast programs, serving nutritious meals to District students and adults. We operate the summer meal program and offer nutrition education and in-service programs. The Nutrition Services Fund differs from other budget segments of the school district in that it is an Enterprise Fund. An Enterprise is an operation that is run like a private business. Revenues should meet or exceed expenditures.

Self-Supporting Department

Nutrition Services is self supporting. We depend on prompt payment from parents for their students' meals to maintain the services we provide to the students.
