A Parent's Guide to Understanding the Lunch Line

Each day we offer students a lunch containing meat or a meat alternative, grains, fruits, vegetables, and milk. While the most nutritious lunch contains all of these options, we understand that sometimes our students do not like some of the items we serve. To make our student customers happy, we like to give them the option to decline items they do not want to eat. Out of the five food groups we offer students, they must choose at least three food groups for their meal. One of the food groups must be a fruit or vegetable. The choice is up to them! Please see our parent's guide to understanding the lunch line flyer for more information.
