Child Nutrition & Wellness

The Department of Child Nutrition and Wellness strives to provide a school environment where students learn, establish and maintain healthy eating and physical activity patterns for life. Our staff of 168 prepares more than 19,500 nutritious, well-balanced breakfast, lunch and snack options each day.  

Our Physical Education and Health educators advocate for healthy lifestyle choices through classroom instruction proven to have a positive influence on student achievement and preparation for becoming a productive citizen.  

Vision: Healthy Choices—Every Child, Every Day 

Core Beliefs: 

  • We believe that all children want to pursue their goals and dreams which can only be achieved by making healthy choices. 
  • We believe there is a relationship between healthy eating and wellness choices and the capacity of children to learn and succeed. 
  • We believe that students, teachers, administrators, counselors, school nutrition staff, school nurses, and community are partners in the achievement of our vision.
