Serving Healthy Meals for Healthy Bodies & Minds
Our mission is to provide meals that are delicious and nutritious, are made from high quality products, are reasonably price and have high customer acceptability. Our staff takes pride in their work and is dedicated to providing our students and faculty with a pleasurable lunch time experience.
Our meals are planned to meet the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010’s revised Meal Pattern which consist of: a variety of fruit; larger servings and a wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes (students must take at least one serving of fruit or vegetable with breakfast & lunch); fat-free white or chocolate milk or 1% white milk; more whole grains; less saturated fat; and less sodium ensuring that they are healthy, well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school.

What’s New?? Triton Middle and High Schools now have a “self-serve” yogurt smoothie bar option for lunch. Students select from 2 flavors of yogurt & fruit smoothie, a choice of either a bagel w/cream cheese, pretzel w/mustard, or a nutrient bar along, and a fruit, vegetable, and milk. Triton High School now offers a “2nd Chance Breakfast” for those students who prefer to eat later in the morning to “boost their brain-power” until lunchtime. Salisbury Elementary School will be providing breakfast “Free of Charge” to all students enrolled in the school for the entire school year as a pilot program. We will be continuing to offer new and exciting menu choices throughout the school year. Check out of menus for more information.
In addition to our new items we also offer a daily hot entrée and a variety of alternate options including salads, sandwiches, cheese & cracker boxes, yogurt & cereal parfait, and a bagel &/or yogurt box. Fruit, vegetable, and milk are offered with all our meals. We also have a variety of items on our breakfast menu including a French toast sticks, maple-glazed pancakes, muffins, apple cinnamon rolls, assorted cereals, and more. We hope you enjoy our delicious options!
Pine Grove Elementary School successfully implemented a “Grab-n-Go” breakfast option available everyday in the front lobby. Don’t have time to sit down and eat breakfast in the cafe? No problem. Grab a breakfast and go to you classroom and enjoy it there instead! Don’t start you day on an empty stomach…
We still try to accommodate the special dietary requests of our students and staff when planning our menus. Juice is only offered at breakfast so if your child has a milk/dairy allergy, please contact the food service director to make special beverage arrangements at lunch. A la carte milk, juice, and 8 oz bottled water are available to purchase for $0.60 and 16 oz bottled water is $1.00.
Please note that charging of a la carte items is not allowed. Students must have money in their accounts to make such purchases.
The nutritional information of our meals is available on our menus which are posted on our website monthly.
School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! Breakfast is available daily for only $1.75 for grades K-12 and Lunch is available daily for only $2.85 for grades K-8 and $3.10 for grades 9-12. Reduced-price breakfast is only $0.30 and lunch is only $0.40 for grades K-12. After-school snack is $0.80. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school meals!
As a reminder, all of our cafeteria registers are computerized as part of the Mosaic POS system. All students and staff are assigned a unique ID number which will be entered in at the registers to purchase meals. Deposits can also be made on-line at mySchoolBucks.com.

Thanks again for all your participation and support in our programs. We look forward to welcoming your children to our cafeteria.
