La Center Food Service
La Center School District’s Food Services Department is an essential partner in the educational mission of the La Center School District and its role in the district’s comprehensive nutrition program. The district provides varied and nutritious food choices consistent with the applicable federal government Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The District supports the choices of our students and their families regarding participation in their school’s comprehensive nutrition program and provides free and reduced-price breakfasts, lunches and milk to eligible students according to the terms of the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs and the laws and rules of the state.
Why School Lunches Are Your Best Choice
La Center schools lunches have to meet national nutritional standards. So you can be confident that your child is having a balanced meal. La Center schools provide:
- At least one portion of fruit or one portion of vegetables with every meal.
- High-quality meat, poultry or fish regularly.
- Whole grain bread, other cereals and potatoes regularly.
- Low sodium food choices.
- La Center schools students have an unlimited fruit and vegetable bar.
Friendly cafeteria staff to help your child make the best school lunch. You may find that your previously fussy eater is open to trying new foods if they have school meals. Their friends will be having the same or similar foods, enticing them to try something different. Above all, school meals will save time. The only thing you’ll have to remember is to pay for your child’s meals. La Center schools has a smooth-running payment system that make it easy for you!!
Wishing you good nutritional health!
