goal of the Fitchburg Nutrition Services department has always been to provide
your children with the best possible healthy meals. Our menus are analyzed to
make sure that we are in compliance with the dietary guidelines of the Healthy,
Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) and Federal USDA regulations. We work to ensure that
our meals are well-balanced and offer students all of the nutrition
they need to succeed in school.
We proudly offer locally grown items whenever seasonally available. Each week
we feature deeply colored, nutrient rich produce including red/orange, dark
green, and starchy vegetables, as well as a variety of legumes. Fresh and chilled
fruits are served daily along with lean protein items, whole grains, and low
fat or fat free milk options. Students can choose to take an entrée, 1 full cup
of fruit, 1 full cup of vegetables, and milk at no cost. Students who choose to
pack a lunch can supplement their meal with a full cup of fruit, a full cup of
vegetables, and milk at no cost.
Keep an eye out for some changes in the cafeterias starting in the 2015-2016
school year. The strict calorie and sodium restrictions will now prevent us
from allowing students to purchase second entrees. However, students will be able to purchase a second
meal (including entrée, fruits, vegetables, milk) at full price.
