Food Services

Good nutrition and academic success go hand in hand!

Our Food Services Department, provided by Weld County District 6, consists of a team of food and nutrition professionals who are dedicated to students' health, well-being, and their ability to learn. We support academic success by providing healthy meal choices while promoting lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Nutritional Excellence

All of our school campuses participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The NSLP is a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritionally balanced, low cost or free meals to qualifying students. The food and beverages we sell or serve on our campuses meet the state and federal requirements, which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We encourage families to apply for meal benefits by completing the free and reduced meal application.

Food Services Staff
