Our menus are designed with students in mind. We focus on variety, student favorities, and incorporating local foods whenever possible. Meals consist of a mix of scratch-cooked recipes and processed items that adhere to strict nutritional guidelines. Every day there is a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to choose from, like melon, grapes, apples, bananas, oranges, sugar snap peas, broccoli, carrots, and more! Every school offers a variety of alternate choices for students to enjoy if they do not wish to eat the main meal. These alternates can be found on the right sidebar of our menus. Be sure to follow us @GreenfieldSchoolFood on Instagram and Facebook for monthly and weekly menus, as well as photos of our menu items.
