We serve two snacks and a lunch each day using menus that are nutritious and enjoyed by children. We have four weekly menus that are rotated and posted each week. Food items must be easy to prepare for 80-100 children and appropriate for infants to ten year olds. Most of our baked goods and casseroles are prepared from scratch. Our cook makes a special effort to minimize the sugar, salt and other additives in our recipes.  We serve 1% milk (whole milk for infants), 100% fruit juice and whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables as often as possible. Each summer, we supplement our menu with fresh produce we grow in our own garden as well as produce we receive from “our farmer” through the CSA program. Due to severe allergies of several of our children, we are a peanut-free facility.
