Menus

We use MealViewer, an interactive menu that allows students and families to easily see nutrition (calories, fat, carbohydrates, etc.) and allergy information for meals served at school each day. In addition, families can create free MealViewer profiles for their students to better monitor dietary restrictions, identify food allergies, and more. Contact Colleen Fairbanks with questions about MealViewer.
