Our district Food Services department works hard to provide healthy lunches to our students. They use local foods when possible and provide students the opportunity to try new, locally sourced, food items at our monthly tasting tables.
Information about the program including the nutrition guidelines, our pre-ordering system at the elementary schools, the online student accounts, menus, farm to school programs, and more can be found on the district website on the Food and Nutrition Services page.
Menus for all the schools can be found here.
Tasting Tables for March
At our tasting tables on Thursday, March 5th, Hoover students will have the chance to try locally-grown rutabaga sticks with white bean hummus. Be sure to ask your child if they tried it – and if they liked it!

Help spread the word that meals are served free of charge to kids and teens ages 1 – 18 at sites all across the state of Oregon. Community summer meal programs are open to all families and don’t ask for any paperwork – kids can just drop in.
