The Norwalk Community School District Nutrition Department participates in the National School Lunch & Breakfast Programs and follows the regulations under the guidance of the USDA. All breakfast and lunch menus adhere to strict nutritional guidelines set forth by the USDA and meet age appropriate dietary recommendations.
The mission of the Nutrition Department is to provide exceptional service to our customers while providing them not only with nutritious and appealing meal options, but also with compassion and kindness.
The department currently has 19 staff members, of whom 100% are currently Serv-Safe Certified through the National Restaurant Association. Last school year, the Nutrition Department served almost 300,000 lunch meals to the students in Norwalk. Students at the secondary campuses also have access to various a la carte options. All beverage and snack options sold in the cafeteria meet the standards established by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.
We are proud of the food served to the students in Norwalk and encourage parents to join their students for lunch or breakfast. Breakfast is served at each cafeteria before the start of the school day beginning at 7:30 each morning, unless school is delayed due to inclement weather.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
