Students who eat nutritious, balanced diets are better prepared to learn and succeed in school. USD 383 Child Nutrition Department is made up of a dedicated team of nutrition and food service professionals that believe food safety is our priority. Ongoing training is provided through KSDE and all school site food service managers, leads, and primary production staff each have ten hours per year of continuing education on professional standards. The food service staff support learning by providing access to healthy, affordable meals to students in each school building. Meals are designed to provide variety and assist in developing life-long healthy eating habits. Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!
All schools offer breakfast and lunch under the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch Program when school is in session. All menus meet or exceed USDA guidelines, with age-appropriate meal patterns based on the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Meals are prepared and served in compliance with federal, state and local regulations. If you would like nutritional or allergy information on any of our items please contact us at 785-587-2851.

USD 383 is committed to the safety and health of all students. Many of our students suffer from environmental, medical, or food-related allergies. We strive to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for students with allergies and reduce the likelihood of severe or potentially life-threatening allergic reactions. We want to ensure a rapid and effective response in the case of a severe or potentially life-threatening allergic reaction. Requirements for meal modification requests through food service vary depending on whether a student has a disability or whether it is a food allergy or intolerance that does not rise to the level of a disability. Food Service will make meal modifications prescribed by a licensed physician when a student has a disability. (See the definition of disability on the meal modification form). When a student has a food allergy or intolerance, or other medical condition that does not rise to the level of a disability, food service has the option of making a meal modification requested by a medical authority.
Meal modifications will continue until the licensed physician or medical authority requests that it be changed or stopped (Form 19-C Discontinuation of School Meal Modifications Form).

- Make a difference in the children's diet to impact their present and future health.
3.After School Snack Program (Super Snack). When school is out and parents are still at work, children need a safe place to be with their friends, with structured activities, and supportive adults. Afterschool programs that serve meals and snacks draw children and teenagers into constructive activities that are safe, fun, and filled with opportunities for learning. Bluemont, Lee, Northview, Ogden and Eisenhower currently participate in the At Risk After School Supper Program or “Super Snack”.
4. When school is not in session many of our elementary schools also participate in the USDA Summer Feeding Program. Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to all children 1-18 years of age. This program helps the children get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school. During the summer of 2018 summer feeding sites included Bluemont, Lee, Northview, Ogden, Theodore Roosevelt, and East Campus.
