MCCPS Nutrition Department strives to expose our community to healthy food choices. We pride ourselves as a from scratch kitchen and make most items on the premises. We look at good nutrition as fuel for learning minds. We offer a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains with every meal. Daily we offer hot and cold breakfast and lunch and snacks for recess. Breakfast is usually served buffet style and contains all the key components to jump start a day of learning. Things like whole-wheat muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, whole grain waffles and pancakes, eggs, bacon and turkey sausage to name just a few. Lunch is a well-balanced complete meal and a well-stocked, fresh, seasonal salad bar. Our lunch menu varies from month to month but will never include chicken nuggets or chicken patties. We do not use processed food only fresh, wholesome ingredients. In our cafe we also offer a variety of healthy snacks and homemade treats for recess. As a way to encourage our students to eat fruit, there is always a bowl of free, fresh, seasonal fruit available. We offer a variety of seasonal and local fruits. We also offer cooking classes as an option for the enrichment curriculum. We teach the children techniques and skills that they can take with them beyond the classroom. We make anything from healthy after-school snacks to more filling dinner items such as pasta. Our goal is to teach the student community healthy and nutritional food options that they will recognize and continue to enjoy as adults and for a lifetime.
