Oregon School District Nutrition Department
Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year! The Oregon School District Nutrition Department is proud to serve healthy and delicious meals to our K-12 students. We have a focus on serving local foods as well as items that are free of unwanted added ingredients (such as high fructose corn syrup). Additionally, throughout the year, our students will have the opportunity to participate in taste tests to try a variety of foods that are locally sourced or new menu items.
The federal program that allowed schools to offer free meals ends this summer. This means that school meals will no longer automatically be free for everyone. You must add money to your student’s meal account or apply for free/reduced meal prices if your student plans to eat school breakfast and/or lunch during the 2022-2023 school year.
How to Build a Complete Meal:
Students have many choices in building a complete meal for breakfast and lunch. Here are some guidelines to help them successfully fill their plate.
BREAKFAST: A complete breakfast is built with a minimum of 3 of 4 items, including grains, fruits, milk. One choice must be a ½ cup fruit. If a K-12 student only takes one or two options, they will be asked to go back to make a full meal, 5th-12th grade students have the option to be charged a la carte pricing.
LUNCH: A complete lunch is built with a minimum of 3 of the 5 food groups - protein, grain, fruit, vegetable and milk. One choice must be a 1/2 cup fruit or vegetable. If a K-12 student only takes one or two options, they will be asked to go back to make a full meal, 5th-12th grade students have the option to be charged a la carte pricing.
