Food Services

Mission Statement

It is the mission of Salt River Community Schools Food Services to make breakfast and lunch meals of optimal nutritional value available to students. We are very proud to offer FREE daily healthy food choices to all students. Our menus are determined by the National School Lunch Program, taste tests and trends.

The Salt River Community Schools participates in the National School Lunch program. Menus are planned to meet the Federal Program requirements. These requirements have been updated to meet the recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. School meals are served to students under the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program.

These standards include:
• Increased fruit and vegetable options.
• Portion size guidelines and calorie limits based on the age of children served.
• Increased emphasis on whole grain products.
• Limits on the types of milk served, more low fat (1%) and non-fat varieties.
• Reductions in sodium levels.

Approved Wellness Policy: Wellness Policy

The Wellness Policy is an important tool for parents and schools to help promote student wellness, reduce childhood obesity, and provide nutritional guidelines.
