School Meals

We serve healthy, tasty meals every day

Nutrition Services

We want to ensure that your child receives the fuel necessary to be successful in the classroom. Our low cost meals provide your child with the best nourishment, variety, and service available. Because diet has a long-range effect on health, happiness, education and success for your child, our healthy meals are an opportunity to enhance their future and ability to learn. All menus are analyzed so that each week we are assured that our menus meet the dietary guidelines. Your child comes first at Nutrition Services, so please give us the opportunity to assist in their physical and intellectual fitness. Please call me or any of the kitchens if you have any questions or ideas to improve what we do for your child. You are also always welcome to join your child for a meal at school.

Nutrition Civil Rights

The Oregon Department of Education Child Nutrition Programs (ODE CNP) works closely with the regional USDA Office of Civil Rights and other organizations committed to equal educational opportunity and respectful environments.

ODE CNP actively promotes equity. We offer training and technical assistance to ODE CNP sponsors and providers to assist them with their responsibilities regarding discrimination and harassment. ODE CNP also conducts workshops on these and related subjects at state, regional, local program sites, and conferences. Future activities include developing outreach strategies and tactics aimed at inclusiveness and increased program participation.
