Jefferson City Schools Food Service Department is committed to providing each student with a healthy, affordable, and safe meal that is served by caring individuals so students are ready to learn when they get to the classroom. School breakfast and lunch are planned and prepared according to standards that meet the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans in a safe and sanitary environment. The cafeterias serve as learning centers where students can acquire the knowledge to develop lifelong healthy eating habits.
USDA’s federal nutrition regulations for school meals ensure that all meals offered are well-balanced and provide students with the fuel they need. Recent changes to the meal pattern regulations include an increase in fruits and vegetables (each student must select at least one serving), a greater variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes, and an increase in the availability of whole-grain products, and a more age-appropriate caloric limit.
Jefferson City Schools recognizes that student wellness and proper nutrition are related to students' well-being, growth, development, and readiness to learn. Please click HERE to access the district's wellness policy.
If you have any comments, suggestions, or a desire to be involved in the implementation of this policy, please contact Savannah Hix at 706-367-2546.
We look forward to dining with your children in our cafeteria.
