Spring is here and with the change of the season comes changes to our menus. Over the month of April, your school will transition to our newly updated Spring-Summer Menu.
This season, we’re featuring Fresh Fruit Fridays! Every Friday during lunch, your child will be served fresh fruit with their meal, including bananas, apples, oranges, pears, honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon! All of this fresh, seasonal fruit will benefit our students’ health while supporting our Grow Fit mission.
