    Our purpose

    The child nutrition program is dedicated to providing high quality, nutritious meals to the students in the Anoka-Hennepin School District so they can learn and develop for their future. Our department's services include breakfast, lunch and after school snack programs as well as daycare meals, catering and other snacks and meals as needed. Check out breakfast and lunch menus at ahschools.us/menus.


    How meals are planned

    All student meals must meet the federal guidelines for types and amounts of food offered. In addition, they must be appealing to students so they are consumed. A departmental advisory committee consisting of staff from elementary, middle and high schools and a department administrator, plus student focus and advisory groups all contribute to menu development and product choices. Menus are reviewed and adjusted periodically to reflect changing customer tastes and new products. Nutritional information for menu items can be found on the district website.
