The Beaverton School District's Nutrition Services department nourishes minds by providing appealing, nutritious meals for students while they are in school. Good nutrition is essential in the learning process, and our mission is to help ensure students are ready to learn.
The district does not contract with a food service management company to operate the child nutrition programs offered. By School Board policy, NS is required to be self-supporting, providing nutritious meals while operating in a fiscally efficient manner with no General Fund support.
NS operates the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP) at each of the district's 53 sites.
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP) are federal entitlement programs authorized by Congress and funded mainly through USDA meal reimbursements (63%) and meal payments from students (23%).
Nutrition Services also administers other federally and/or state sponsored programs that provide opportunities for children to access meals including:
Farm to CNP (Child Nutrition Programs) was formally referred to as the Farm to School Program in Oregon. The program provides funding that assist us to purchase and serve food grown and produced locally to students of the Beaverton School District.
