The New Face of School Meals
The United States Department of Agriculture issued updated nutrition requirements for the National School Meal Program starting this school year. The changes are based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
New nutrition standards for school meals are great news for our kids because they support our school nutrition team’s efforts to create healthier meals.

The Food Service is a self supporting, customer driven, service organization that provides nutritious food in a cost effective manner building healthy minds and bodies ready to learn.
We serve approximately 1,500 Breakfasts and 7,000 Lunches each day to Edmonds School District students. Thirty two percent of the enrolled student body qualify for free or reduced priced meals.
We serve Breakfast and Lunch in every school every day school is in session unless otherwise announced.
Research has shown that there is an important, positive relationship between good nutrition and health, behavior and student learning. The Edmonds School District participates in the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program and the Commodity Distribution Program. United States Department of Agriculture regulations guide our program. Weekly and monthly menus are planned by experienced staff members and reviewed by a Registered Dietitian. These menus meet the USDA specifications based on the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans.
Continuing the practice started May 17, 2010, students who intend to buy food through the school meals program must pay in advance or pay as they go to purchase items. No credit will be extended.
