The Child Nutrition department of the Auburn School District is a self-supporting operation responsible for planning, ordering, preparing, and serving attractive, nutritious meals for district students and staff.
It is our mission to meet the nutritional needs of the students and staff of the Auburn School District by offering a variety of quality, nutritious meals in a timely, cost-effective manner. In our work to fulfill this mission, we:
Meals are based on a cycle menu and are analyzed by USDA regulations, cost, production, and nutrition. A variety of breakfast and lunch options (hot and cold) are available each day. Menus are developed within federal and state guidelines that govern our program and are based on the "Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act 2010."
The Child Nutrition department is the "voice" of good nutrition in the schools. Nutrition information is shared with students on menus, in the lunchroom, and in classrooms. We are enthusiastic about two-way communication and take pride in being a department that is known to be helpful and supportive. To assure that our webpage is a valuable resource people will use time and time again, we ask you to let us know if you come across any links that are not working. Anytime you have questions or concerns regarding the program, the Child Nutrition Assistant Director or Coordinator may be contacted directly at 253-931-4972.
