Welcome to the

Food for Thought Lunch Program! 
 

We are thrilled to be able to kick off our NINTH year of bringing our students and staff to the table. Our district is lucky to have a community that recognizes the connection between a nourished mind and body.

 

Our Mission

The Food for Thought Program focuses on unprocessed, locally sourced meals prepared by a knowledgeable staff with the help of culinary-minded students. We maintain uncompromising quality in the meals we prepare and the skills we impress upon the student chefs.

 

 

Community Dinners

We will be hosting our COMMUNITY DINNERS again this year as a way to showcase our program to the community and provide a chance for us all to share a meal. The proceeds support the Student Chef.0 Program and help keep this program successful!

 

 

Lunch Accounts

Your help is needed to keep our program running! Due to State Auditor Mandate, please maintain a POSITIVE lunch balance at all times. We have made this more manageable by providing online credit card payment and account maintenance though Family and Student Access. You can opt in for low balance email notifications as well as make instant online payments. Of course, payments can also be made in the school office with cash or check before lunch.

Please be aware that last year's Free and Reduced Applications EXPIRED in October. Please turn a new application into the school office ASAP for a seamless transition for your student. Once the application expires, the student will default to a pre-paid status and money must be on the student's account to be able to participate in the lunch program. Applications are available in English and Spanish here, or at your school office. Please call Jill Peacock at 360-370-5209.
 

We have been chosen to participate in a nation-wide pilot program that will allow us to spend our federal funding on local unprocessed fruits and vegetables. This will give our program an extra boost on the path we have blazed towards healthy, sustainable and delicious meals.
