Director of Food and Nutrition Services

Our Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to preparing healthy meals for your children.  We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Scratch Cooking

In our district we still believe in scratch cooking.  I would like to list a few of the items we prepare from scratch: whole grain rolls, scratch apple, cherry, peach, and blueberry crisp made with a whole grain topping.  All of the pasta dishes are made from scratch using whole grain noodles.  Our chili, chicken and rice soup, and chicken noodle soup are also made from scratch, as well as several other items that are too numerous to mention.  I wanted to list a few scratch items to give an example of the love that each meal is prepared with.  We are very proud of the food we serve our students and we want to let everyone know that we are striving to make a difference in the life of each child.
