• School Nutrition Services

    MRH School Nutrition Services is here to nourish the well-being of students and staff through nutritious and tasty meals.

    Our department has a Registered Dietitian and Certified Sous Chef guiding our team of school nutrition service professionals to elevate the student and staff experience. Our focus is on incorporating more recipes from scratch and increasing our Seed to Table efforts to continually develop our school nutrition culture. 

    We participate in federal school meal programs to provide breakfast, lunch, and snacks that follow nutrition guidelines from the National School Lunch Program (almuerzo), School Breakfast Program (desayuno), and the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. These guidelines are based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans

    We also process the Free and Reduced Meal Application that must be turned in every year, at the start of the school year. This allows us to provide financial benefits for families who qualify as Free or Reduced. 

    Your voice is important to us. We encourage students and families to participate in the Wellness Committee to help guide student and staff health and wellness through food, physical activity, and more.

    If you would like to join our school nutrition service family, please visit the Current Job Openings site to see the available listings.

    Stronger with Schools Meals

    What a Meal Looks Like Breakfast Food


    Breakfast consists of three main food components: (1) whole grain and/or lean protein; (2) fruit, vegetable, and/or 100% fruit juice; and (3) milk. School Nutrition staff encourage all students to eat a well-balanced breakfast. 

    Students will receive a school breakfast of the three food components in the appropriate portion sizes for their grade level. All school breakfasts are free of charge.


    Lunch consists of five main food components: (1) whole grain, (2) lean protein, (3) vegetable, (4) fruit, and (5) milk. School Nutrition staff encourage all students to select a well-balanced lunch.

    Students will receive a school lunch with the five food components in the appropriate portion sizes for their grade level. Lunches are free for the school year 2021-2022.
