Welcome families and community members!

Thank you for your interest in our Food Services

 

Mission

The mission of the Frontier Regional/Union#38 Schools and Food Services is to offer balanced, nutritious meals for all students, promote overall health, academic success and educate students to make optimal food choices for life.

Meals

Monthly menus are planned by our Food Services Director to meet the required State and Federal nutrition guidelines for students according to grade level. As part of the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs we offer students balanced meals that contain five food components –  whole grains, meats or meat alternatives, fruit, vegetables and milk. Students at the Middle and High School level participate in “offer vs.serve” in which they have the option to choose from certain meal components (in addition to a fruit or vegetable).

Please be advised that although we try our best to plan and keep to the monthly menu as posted – sometimes we have to modify menu items due various reasons.

All lunches for the 2021-2022 School Year will be free to all Frontier Reginal/Union#38 Students.

Food Allergies

In recent years there have been an increasing number of students diagnosed with food allergies in our school system. In response we are taking precautions to keep our students safe.  We communicate with school nurses regularly and have food allergy information for students listed in their lunch account. Ingredient lists are posted daily in each cafeteria and we can provide food labels upon request. We provide special lunches for students who have documented food allergies and prepare them in a separate location to prevent cross contamination. We take every precaution to serve healthy, safe, and nutritious meals. We will make accommodations when possible to serve our diverse student body.

Parents or guardians of students with a life threatening food allergy are required to:

  1. Contact your School Nurse and submit all required medical documentation to them.
  2. Establish an alternative or back up lunch option with the School Nurse, Kitchen Manager and School Nutritionist.
  3. If you would like food label information, or need assistance regarding your child’s specific dietary needs, please contact Melanie Plesko, RDN at pleskom@weston.org or (781) 786 – 5292.
