An Introduction to School Meals

Children need healthy meals to learn. Stanwood Camano School District offers healthy meals through the National School Lunch Program to students every school day.  We provide a complete breakfast and lunch program, which meets or exceeds the nutritional requirements established by the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program. Breakfast and lunch are served at all schools. The mid-level and high school have expanded menus with many a-la-carte features including daily fresh salads, low-fat yogurts, bagels,  sandwiches, fresh fruit and of course the kids' favorites including fresh baked pizza and burgers and an assortment of fruit juices and milk. Menus are distributed monthly indicating the daily entree’ specials. These meals feature less fat, less sodium, and more fruits and vegetables. Our district uses the Offer vs. Serve method to serving meals.  Offer versus Serve (OVS) is a provision in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) that allows students to decline some of the food offered. The goals of OVS are to reduce food waste in the school meals programs while permitting students to decline foods they do not intend to eat (see below for more information). Here are some fact sheets about the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program and also information regarding Smart Snacks in Schools!
