Nine Mile Falls School District

Nine Mile Falls School District Food Service

Our district participates in the the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The NSLP is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by President Harry Truman in 1946.¹

To fulfill the nutritional requirements set by the NSLP, and to please the students in our district, our department strives to offer a fun and appealing a variety of lunches. The 2014-2015 school year marks the implementation of several new nutrition based guidelines for all schools, nation wide, participating in the NSLP. The new changes ensure that the meals being served meet calorie ranges for each age group, offer a variety of colorful fruit and vegetable choices, and contain appropriate levels of carbohydrates and protein for the average student (depending on grade level). For more information on the change in menu requirements, please see the "Meal Pattern Information" link on the right hand side of the page.
We look forward to serving the students in our district this school year! Please email or call with any questions we may be able to help answer.
