    Our mission is to serve nutritious, well-balanced meals that appeal to students and the school community so all are ready to learn.

    Free and Reduced Meal Applications: We encourage all parents/guardians to fill out this form so the district can assess whether you are eligible for this program. It is imperative that these forms be returned to your school office as soon as possible so your child/children can benefit from this service. It is important to make you aware that the district receives funding from the state based on the number of students enrolled in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. 

    Nutrislice: We will send elementary menus home but you may also access menus using Nutrislice. It is a web based application that shows parents the nutrient and allergy information for every menu item we produce.

    School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size in the lower levels. Standards set in the 2010 Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act mandate that school lunches meet additional standards requiring:

    • Age-appropriate calorie limits
    • Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
    • A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
    • Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
    • More whole grains
    • Less sodium
    School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! School meal prices are:
    • Elementary Schools, $2.75

    • Breakfast, $1.25
    • Milk, $.50

    Meals may be paid for by cash, check (made out to Dartmouth School Nutrition) or pre-paid by setting up an account at www.myschoolbucks.com. Through your child’s individual lunch account he or she will access monies which you have added and be able to withdraw funds for meals and snack items.
