We participate in the National School Lunch Program - what does that mean? Our menus are created to ensure that our customers get the daily recommended servings of the 5 major food groups - Meat/Meat alternative, Dairy, Grains, Fruits and Vegetables.

Our Daily lunch meals are $3.05 and include an Entree, plus 3 sides. Options for the three sides can be your choice - milk, fresh/canned fruits, hot or raw veggies. Both of our Warrior Canteens have a "Sides Bar" loaded with fresh fruit and veggies, fruit juices, salad greens and fresh vegetables, plus seasonal fresh fruit and vegetable favorites. Be sure to take advantage of all of the options that are available!

Breakfast is served daily starting at 6:50. Start your day right with a breakfast that keeps you going all morning! Breakfast meals are $1.80 and include Entree, fruit or juice and milk. Stop in and grab breakfast or a snack!

After following the Dietary Guidelines for Americans we realize that nutrition is much more than discovering vitamins and minerals. It is about getting enough of all the right foods in the calories allotted plus minimizing the processed foods that are over-consumed. In our super busy worlds where high-calorie, palatable foods are both convenient and abundant, nutrition for most consumers is more about navigating the systems of their lives to make good decisions than worrying about being vitamin deficient. The food you eat affects every living cell in your body!

WE DO NOT TAKE CASH IN THE LUNCH ROOM. Please set up your student's account in Skyward. There you can load money on to the account so that your student is able to make purchases in the cafeteria.

Students with a negative balance on their lunch account will no longer be able to make an ala carte purchase in the lunch room. Please call your student's campus and ask for the Help Desk if you need assistance loading money on to your student's lunch account. Payment can also be made in the Main Office before school.
