Food Services Overview

 

Hanover School District works really hard at meeting the new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Our menus are audited by CDE Office of School Nutrition to ensure that they meet the criteria and standards that the USDA has set for growing students.

Our district school meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Starting in the School Year 2012-2013, school lunches have meet the additional standards requiring:

* Age-appropriate calorie limits
* Larger servings of vegetables and fruits
* A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
* Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
* More whole grain
* And less sodium

Here at Hanover School District we’re always working to offer students healthier and tastier choices and we strive to create menus that appeal to kids offering many breakfast options, foods that they are familiar with, but also we pride ourselves on offering from “Scratch Cooking” on at least half of our weeks lunch menu, and always a Fresh Salad Bar with many fresh fruit and vegetable options to choose from.

Our Nutrition Services Department recognize that school meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families like yourself but we also want you as parents to know that we truly appreciate you supporting our program and encouraging your student to try new foods. If you find that you have any questions or concerns, dietary restrictions or special dietary needs, please do not hesitate to contact me at 719-683-2247 ext 117.

It’s always a pleasure feeding your student a healthy nutritious meal one plate at a time!
