Welcome to Food & Nutrition
The Northwest R-I School District Food Service Department serves both breakfast and lunch to all eleven schools throughout the district. With lunch selections such as ravioli and cheese, served with garlic bread, a tossed salad, and cookie; and breakfast foods such as French toast with syrup, sausage, and juice, school meals are designed to please the appetite.
The Northwest Food Service Department is part of the National School Lunch Program. NSLP is dedicated to the health and well-being of our nation's children and designs menu options to not only be appetizing and serve a variety of tastes, but to meet all government nutrition guidelines.
Updated prices for the 2012-2013 school year.
Prepaying for meals is a necessary part of the district's point of sale system. Prepayment for meals and ala-carte items improve meal service and prevent lost money. The district encourages parents to pay for at least one week's worth of meals at a time. Payment by check decreases the possibility of errors and provides for an audit trail. In the system, Each student is assigned a Personal Identification Number (PIN). The PIN number will access a computerized "bank account."
The district recognizes that nutrition is important to ensure student success at school, and it is committed to providing meals for every child. Parents interested in determining if they qualify for financial aid for the purchase of student's lunch must complete an application and return it to the school each school year to avoid receiving any modified meal. For more information on the free and reduced lunch program, contact the food service department.
