1. We believe that school meals are an important component of student successbecause
·the meals help develop sound nutritional habits by exposing students to a variety of foods. We offer many food choices and provide healthy fruits and vegetables daily.
·the well-nourished student has better attendance, is more attentive, better behaved and has an increased energy level. All of these elements are tied to academic success.
2. We believe that food safety is one of our concerns. We have implemented a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Program throughout the District to reduce the chance of a food-borne illness event. Temperatures of all food products are monitored throughout production and service.
3. We believe that it is a privilege to serve the students of Elmore County.
4. We believe that it is our duty to promote fiscal responsibility and ensure compliance in all areas.
