Our department serves both the students & staff here at the ENCSD. The Dietary staff prepares two meals a day (Breakfast & Lunch) and afternoon snacks for all students. Our school lunches provide at least 1/3 of the daily requirements for our students. This includes calories, protein, iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium, and fiber. Calories from fat are kept below 30% with 10% allowed from saturated fats and 0% from trans-fats. They are also low in cholesterol and sodium. All lunch meals follow the Offer versus Serve (OVS) serving method which allows the student to select nutritious options. School lunch meals offer students fat free or 1% milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins, and grains. In addition to the breakfast and lunch meals, supper is prepared for boarding students Sunday-Thursday. Boarding students are provided daily bedtime snacks. The Dietary department prepares food for special events happening on campus and students with special dietary needs. Meals are available for staff purchases, as well.


Breakfast and lunch meals served at the ENCSD meet state and federal requirements, which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.
