Welcome to Student Nutrition Services

Transforming nutrition for our scholars, one delicious dish at a time.

At Hopkins, we believe introducing children to a variety of foods early in life will broaden their taste palettes, allowing them to develop a healthier diet. Our schools have full kitchens where our cooks can prepare meals from scratch. We partner with local farmers to bring fresh foods to our scholar's tables.

Both breakfast and lunch programs are available at all schools. Meals served in our cafeterias must meet Department of Agriculture guidelines.

A variety of services are offered under the guidance of the nutrition department. Breakfast and lunch programs, a restaurant quality menu, a la carte lines, a catering and concessions service, and student wellness/education resources represent the major services.

However, you can help our school district qualify for important Federal and State financial resources to support education by submitting a meal benefits application for your family.
