During the 2022-2023 school year all of our Brighter Choice schools will be in partnership with A’viands Foods to provide healthy and nutritious meals to scholars. A’viands partner with charters to create customized meal solutions that meet their individual needs. They will also work with our after school programs, to expand food access beyond the school day through supper services. The following highlights the quality of the food they will be providing to scholars;
100% whole-grain rich, unbleached flour
USDA high-grade quality, never mechanically separated meat
Fresh, whole fruit
Local options by region
Child Nutrition Program at Brighter Choice
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 main office.
A’viands 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.
