Serving Healthy Meals for Healthy Bodies & Minds

Hello Triton Families,

The Triton Food Service Department has been working hard to create a safe and welcoming environment in our kitchens and cafeterias. All handling of food will only be done by ServSafe trained and certified Food Service staff. Our mission continues to be to provide our students with healthy meals that will support them, both in school and at home. I want to thank you for participating in our program as it keeps our staff working and our program sustainable.

School Meals

Children need healthy meals to learn. Thank you to all who advocated for the universal school meal program for FY23 and for our students to get healthy meals at no cost. We are still waiting on the FY24 state budget decision regarding free school meals in the future and will update when we know more!

Supply Chain Disruption

The Triton Food Service Department is asking for your patience and support as we navigate new challenges. As you may be aware, we are currently faced with unprecedented shortages of food and packaging materials, massive delays or cancellations of deliveries, and department labor shortages. Nationwide shortages and delays have affected availability of certain food items, leading to substitutions of menu items we’ve been able to offer regularly in the past. These supply issues are occurring throughout the country and are especially challenging for school systems, due to the quantity of meals we serve and the nutrition standards we follow.

All of this means that we may need to make quick substitutions to our menus based upon what we are able to acquire. We know that this affects students, and we are doing our best to provide updates about menu changes when possible as soon as we identify an issue.
