In an effort to provide our students with quality products and a variety of foods we will be offering peanut butter, fish, and pork on our regular menus at all grade levels.

Our Mission at APS Nutrition Services

Nutrition Services supports student achievement by serving nutritious, delicious, quality meals with excellent customer service.


The Nutrition Services Department is responsible for the operation of the school lunch and breakfast programs, serving nutritious meals to District students and adults. We operate the summer meal program and offer nutrition education and in-service programs. The Nutrition Services Fund differs from other budget segments of the school district in that it is an Enterprise Fund. An Enterprise is an operation that is run like a private business. Revenues should meet or exceed expenditures.

Self-Supporting Department

Nutrition Services is self supporting. We depend on prompt payment from parents for their students' meals to maintain the services we provide to the students.

Does your child receive free or reduced-price school meals during the school year, or do you believe you may now qualify based on a recent income change? Pandemic-EBT, or P-EBT, can help you feed your family while schools are closed. You will receive a card with approximately $279 per eligible child that you can use to purchase food at stores that accept EBT. If you already receive SNAP benefits and are eligible for P-EBT, these funds will automatically load into your existing account.
