The Board of Education shall provide adequate facilities, resources and personnel for the provision of food services for all elementary and secondary students in district schools.

Food service management is the responsibility of the Cafeteria Manager, who supervises the program and reports directly to the School Business Official, who is designated as the Program Officer. The Cafeteria Manager develops the lunch menus, based on the nutrition requirements of a class “A” lunch. The menus are printed monthly but are subject to change without notice.

The budgetary objective of the lunch program is to operate without subsidization by the district’s general fund. The Board, upon recommendation by the administration, shall set the lunch prices as necessary to cover the unreimbursed costs.
