Food Service is open after school for those involved in sports, clubs, and other programs.

33% of our students qualify for the Federal free & reduced lunch program.

Weekly backpack program for our less fortunate, which gives kids a back pack of food to last over the weekend (faith-based partners)

Summer feeding program

Our kitchen runs a business within a business.

It is responsible to the school board but it makes a profit each year or the board has to make up the deficit on July 1 of each year.

By law the kitchen cannot end the fiscal year with a negative balance.

Our food service is one of very few programs that turns a profit each year and has done so for 20 years.

This means all cost to operate the kitchen including salaries, insurance, utilities, capital equipment and food cost are covered by the prices we charge and like you and your business the kitchen must watch its P& L every month to continue to operate at no cost to the district.
