Food & Nutrition
To provide students with a well-balanced, nutritious and reasonably priced meal.
As a Food Service Department, it is our mission to nourish the youth of today, and to teach our students the importance of eating a well balanced diet. Fruits and vegetables provide essential nutrients for optimal health, and it is our goal to encourage students to take and eat these fruits and vegetables in addition to the main entrée being served on any given day. We offer a wide variety of items on our salad bars in hopes that every child will be able to find at least one item on the salad bar that appeals to them!
Please help us to instill healthy eating habits in the youth of today, by encouraging your child/ren to eat the fruits and vegetables that are served daily. Our bodies thrive on nutrient dense foods (proteins, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables), and eating a well balanced diet has profound health benefits.
School Breakfast and Lunch
Make the Healthy Choice. Our USDA approved school meals provide one-third of the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDA) of the five basic food groups for children K-12. Under federal regulations known as "Offer vs. Serve", students can opt to take a minimum of three of the four breakfast components OR three of the five lunch components. Breakfast is available at all schools.
Healthy Changes in Our School Cafeterias
Lake Orion Community Schools school cafeterias offer a variety of freshly-prepared menu choices that follow the revised federal nutrition standards for school meals. Cycle menus are planned to meet the nutrition needs of children within their calorie requirements and to reduce saturated fats and sodium, while increasing the availability of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
We're always working to offer Lake Orion Community Schools students healthier and tastier choices. Our program initiatives include Locally Grown Foods, Healthy New Menus, Chef Partnerships, Student Tastings, Nutrition Education and Fuel up to Play 60.
We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria this fall. To get the facts about school meals visit www.TrayTalk.org.
