  • Welcome to the

    Food for Thought Lunch Program! 

    Wow, the 2021-22 school year was our 14th 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. We are thrilled to continue to strive for new and innovative ways to inspire a life-long love of food!

    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. 

    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.
