Food Services

Students in Region 14 are provided each day with a high quality, nutritionally balanced meal, consistent with the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA), the calorie goals and the Dietary Guidelines according to the National School Lunch Program. Students also periodically receive fresh vegetables and produce grown on site at Nonnewaug High School by students at the Ellis Clark Regional Agriscience & Technology Program.

The Region 14 Food Services Department strives for the following goals:

  • • Incorporate culinary principles of taste and presentation
  • • Provide safe meals for children
  • • Make meals accessible to all children
  • • Provide education in the preparation and service of healthy, economical meals
  • • Link with a school nutrition policy promoting healthy food choices throughout the school

All foods are prepared in our school kitchens with special effort to make as many items from scratch as possible. All lunches meet the Recommended Dietary Allowance for lunch and Dietary Guidelines per the National School Lunch Program. Low fat alternatives are also incorporated into the lunch menu.

At the elementary school level, multiple entrée choices are offered daily along with fruit, vegetable, grain and milk.

Woodbury Middle School students are offered the choice of one entrée, deli bar (featuring Boar’s Head deli meats), a salad platter or daily grill options.

Nonnewaug High School student lunches consist of choices for hot lunch, pizza lunch or deli bar (featuring Boar's Head deli meats). Students also have the option of buying any of the above items à la carte along with our grill station where a student may purchase a grilled sandwich, a chicken tender platter or fries. Salad platters are also made fresh and offered daily at the high school as well.

Each school also has a snack bar offering approved nutritional snacks as well as ice cream.

Region 14 offers families the convenient on-line prepay system called MySchool Bucks. Parents can make payments, check the status of your account, or view student's food purchasing history. Payments may also be made directly to the cafeteria in the form of cash or checks made out to Region 14 Schools.

Federal and state reimbursements along with government commodities help offset the cost of lunches for students. A school lunch is less expensive than a lunch of equal nutritional value packed at home and eligible students receive meals free or at a reduced price.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. For any questions or issues with a lunch account or MySchoolBucks, please contact the Regional Food Service Manager directly.
