Fun Facts To Honor Nutrition Services

Article Date: Oct 09, 2017

October 9-16 is National School Lunch Week. Here at Bend-La Pine Schools, we are proud of our Nutrition Services and the healthy and tasty meals they provide to our students.

Here are a few fun facts about our meals program:

  • We serve more than 17,000 meals a day, that's more than 2.5 million meals every year!
  • We are more than a school lunch program — we also serve breakfast at all of our schools and offer supper at 16 locations.
  • We have our own Executive Chef who creates healthy and delicious from-scratch recipes, that are cooked in-house.
  • We have our own bakery and bake fresh bread using whole grains every day!
  • We post detailed menus, allergen lists and nutrient analyses for our food on our webpage.
