Farm to School and Scratch Cooking!

During the 2022-2023 school year, our kitchens worked on bringing our students more scratch cooked meals. We plan to continue this style of menu for the 2023-2024 year. Our district is focused on bringing our students nutritious, ingredient-based menu items creating a “from scratch menu”. Our menus will continue to follow the USDA Guidelines for appropriate grades as
well as provide new flavors and varieties. We’re excited to bring more new items to our menus and ask for patience as we work to continue improvements.
