Mission Statement
As an integral part of the District, it is our desire to contribute to the well being and positive growth of our students, both nutritionally and academically by providing healthy, great tasting quality food, in a safe and fun environment by a staff who truly cares about what they do, and who they serve.

Our menus are audited by the USDA to ensure they meet the criteria and standards they set for growing young bodies.  But just because our menus meet these nutrition guidelines, does not mean the students will eat them!  We strive to create menus that appeal to kids in different grade levels and during the year we even ask them what they would like to see on the menu. So our menus are always changing. Bottom line is this: kids learn better when they are not hungry.  Good nutrition and education go hand in hand.
               2013-2014 School Year Meal Prices

Pay Online
Money can be deposited into a students account at any time by cash or check in any amount.  For a small service fee you can now pay for your child's meals on line at http://www.mymealtime.com/ with your MasterCard or Visa.  When using the pay on line feature, the minimum amount that can be deposited into a students' account is 25.00, and the service fee is 4.9% of the total amount you charge.  Any money left in a students' account at the end of the school year will stay in the account ready for use in the next school year.  Since accounts are set up using the student ID#, account balances follow students as they change schools within the district.  A new benefit of the MealTime pay on line service is the ability to check the balance of the account at any time that is convenient to you by simply logging on!  You can also view what and when your students have eaten.
Free and Reduced Meals
Applications for Free and Reduced priced meals can be obtained at your child's school.  Parents are responsible for the full price of all meals until their application has been processed and a determination has been made.  We do our best to process the applications as timely as possible; usually in a couple of days however, the beginning of the school year can take as long as 10 business days from the time the Food and Nutrition office receives the application.  A determination letter will be mailed to everyone who applies to inform them of the determination.
Please note that a new application must be completed for every new school year.
Food Safety
The kitchen staff takes food safety very seriously.  We have monthly training on both food and physical safety for our staff.  We do this because we want to serve food that is safe in a kitchen that is safe for our staff and our students.  

To support the training and keep safety in our daily habits, we perform Food Safety and Physical Safety audits in every kitchen every month.  In addition to those internal audits, the El Paso County Health Department performs annual audits in the schools in Fountain and the US Army performs multiple audits in the schools on Fort Carson.
