Educating the mind
without educating the heart
is no education at all.

Child Nutrition Program at Brighter Choice

During the 2017-18 school year all of our Brighter Choice schools will be serving homemade meals during breakfast and lunch. Scholars in afterschool also receive supper.

As part of our new meal procedures we must obtain documentation from physicians before preparing alternate meals. If your scholar has a food allergy, the attached documents must be completed and signed by your scholar’s physician. All documentation must be completed, signed by physician, and returned to the school nurse.

Our Food Service Director will not be preparing any meals containing pork or peanuts; however, we must still know if scholar has an allergy confirmed by a physician along with an action plan in case of accidental ingestion. The required forms will help our school nurse, and staff, prepare to best support your scholar’s health and well-being.

Again, if your scholar has a food allergy all documentation must be completed, signed by physician, and returned to the school nurse.
