Resources

We are excited to introduce new menus for the 2015-2016 school year. There will be a spring/fall menu and a winter menu. You will find new options as well as some old favorites. Our goals were to serve modern foods students would love that also nourish learning throughout the school day. Many of the new items on the menu represent items found on popular restaurant menus and many are customizable allowing the student to mix and match flavors like build your own sub or wrap, Asian Rice Bowls and Fresh-Mex Burrito Bowls.

Recipes for Home Use

One recipe that is requested since it is no longer on the menu due to sodium content, is Beefy Nachos. We've provided the recipe for you to make at home!
