Breakfast is served mornings from 7:20 to 7:50 each weekday (extended to 8:20 on Wednesday) for as little as $2.50. We have a serving line with a variety of hot items (eggs, sausage, biscuits, muffins) and a grab-and-go line where you can purchase items a la carte.

Lunch is divided into two periods. Students are assigned either to early lunch or late lunch based on their class schedule. Our offerings resemble a food court: hot-lunch line, salad bar, kiosk (burgers, pizza, etc.), plus a rotation of outside vendors, including Chick-fil-A, Papa Murphy’s Pizza, Neptune Subs, and more!

For $3.75, the hot-lunch line serves traditional meals with a main entree (e.g., parmesan chicken, tacos, meatloaf, spaghetti), grain, vegetable, a variety of fresh fruits and milk. Students can also purchase items a la carte. These include sandwiches (peanut butter and jelly as well as lunch meat with cheese), cottage cheese, fruit, and applesauce.

Meal tickets are issued by the cafeteria and are managed through MySchoolBucks.com. Students can replenish their account with cash or check, or they can simply purchase food with cash.
