We know how busy our middle school students get, but we want to give them the chance to grab some nutritious and delicious food at Nutrition Break and during lunch.
To make it easier for our students, and to test out some awesome new recipes, we're rolling out our new Mobil Meal Cart!
You can find it parked in the multipurpose room during Nutrition Break (9:40 am on Monday, 10:00 am Tuesday - Friday) and both lunch periods.  
While we're working on fine tuning our fine Meal Machine, you can expect to see a few new and exciting menu options!  We'll do our best to stock our snack-stock-car with enough food to fuel every craving, but we appreciate your understanding if we run out of certain flavors before you get there.

What's in my student's meal?

What a great question!  We follow USDA guidelines when creating our menu.
Our breakfast meals are made up on whole-grain rich entrees, fruit, and low-fat regular milk or fat-free chocolate milk.
Students make their selection of either the menu entree, or cold cereal and either a cheese stick or yogurt.  No matter which your student selects, they get all the other food items as well!
Our friendly Kitchen Leaders provide encouragement for students to serve themselves at least one-half cup of fruit in addition to their entree.  Water is always available in the cafeteria from our Hydration Station, as well as on the playground from drinking fountains.  Bring your reusable water bottle and help us reduce the waste from disposable cups!
Lunch has some fun variety to it!  Meals are made up of whole-grain rich items, lean proteins, low-fat regular milk or fat-free chocolate milk, and ourseasonal Choice Bar.
Students may choose either the featured menu entree, or the daily "Vegetarian-Friendly"  entree.  (Hint: Vegetarian-Friendly can be a Groovin' Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Super-Cheesey Quesadilla, or an Ultra Bean and Cheese Burrito)
Our Choice Bar is home to fresh fruits and vegetables, salad, sides, and toppings.  You'll see fresh vegetables like carrots, jicama, and more sharing space with fresh apples, bananas, kiwis, and more.  Salads can be pre-mixed with dressings already applied, or be presented like a more traditional build-your-own salad bar.  Other salads include house-made pasta and three-bean salads!  Toppings can include olives and pineapple tidbits on pizza days, house-made croutons, and jalapenos.
