City Schools provides healthy breakfast and lunch options to all City Schools students for free. Supper and snacks are also available. Please take a look at the menus below to see what's being served this month.
Many schools offer students different ways to get breakfast other than in the cafeteria before the school day starts. Students at some schools can pick up food on their way into school. There's also an option to eat breakfast in the classroom. Lunch consists of five components--meat or meat alternative, fruit, vegetables, grains or bread, and milk. Supper and snacks are provided at no cost to students participating in supervised after-school activities at a school.
With parental, cafeteria, and school staff cooperation, City Schools Food & Nutrition Services is committed to accommodating students with food allergies.

This Wellness, Nutrition, and Physical Activity policy (“WNPAP”) sets guidelines for health education, nutrition education and promotion, physical education, physical activity, nutrition standards, behavioral health services, and school-based wellness activities.
