Our Mission

OUR MISSION

The Cafe Can Breakfast and Lunch Programs are designed to provide nutritious meals for growing children. Breakfast is available at selected schools and all district students may purchase a variety of hot lunch selections or fresh chef salads. Our breakfast meal provides one fourth the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for children and lunch provides one third of the RDA. The Food and Nutritional Services (FANS) has actively taken steps to reduce the fat content of school meals to 30 percent or less as recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Food and Nutritional Services Mission

Dedicated to enhancing our children’s education by providing the best customer care in serving safe, nutritious, quality meals while encouraging students to develop life long skills, and knowledge to make healthy food choices.

Free and Reduced Priced Meal Applications

Free and reduced price breakfast and lunch meals are available to students who qualify. Applications for free and reduced price meals in English and Spanish are available in each school office. Food and Nutritional Services accepts Federal Meal Applications anytime throughout the school year, so if you are not eligible now, you may apply any time if your circumstances change that might then qualify your child or children to receive federal meal benefits.

The Cafe Can is thrilled to announce some exciting news! Beginning immediately, households now will have an alternate way to apply for free and reduced priced meal benefits this year! Along with still being able to apply for meal benefits by completing a paper application, we now are offering the ability to apply online!
