Recently, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 was enacted for all school lunch programs in order to provide healthy lunches for children.  There are requirements we follow each day with each of our entrees to include 8 oz. of low fat milk, 1/2 cup of vegetables and 1/2 cup of fruit, with limits on calories, fat and sodium.  We will continue to purchase available fresh produce and vegetables from local farmers.

We are in constant communication with the State of Michigan to ensure we are following the program and any updated requirement changes.  As changes occur, we will keep parents informed as well.

Please feel free to call if you have any questions or concerns and thank you in advance for your understanding. You can be assured that we will do our best to provide healthy lunches to your children.
