Welcome to CCUSD 301 Food Service!

The 2014-15 School Year will bring many changes to the School Lunch Menu for the students of Central Community USD 301.  The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 has put in place new menu planning and nutrition standards which became effective July 1, 2014.

The major changes to the lunch menu starting on the first day of school, August 20, 2014 will be more fruits and vegetables and whole grains offered on the menus.  

  • The fruit portion size for K-8 students will be ½ cup each day and for 9-12 grade students will be 1 cup per day. 
  • The vegetable portion size for K-8 students will be ¾ cup per day and for 9-12 grade students will be 1 cup per day.  
  •  Pastas and breads must be made from at least 50% whole grains.

Other changes to the schools’ meals include:

  • Appropriate serving sizes are defined by grade groupings:  K-5, 6-8 and 9-12. 
  • The choices of milk include fat-free or low-fat milk.  Flavored milk, such as chocolate must be fat-free.
  • There are calorie minimums and maximums for each grade grouping.  This allows for lunch to account for approximately 1/3 of the recommended calories for each grade grouping.
  • A variety of vegetables must be offered.  A variety of different colors and types of vegetables must be offered over a week:  dark green, red/orange, beans/peas/legumes, starchy and other.


To boost the nutritional value of the CCUSD 301 school lunches, we offer plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables for color, texture, variety and fiber to the school lunch, also used are fruits which are frozen and canned in its own juice, hot vegetables are prepared using frozen vegetables that do not contain added fats, sugars and sodium; and canned vegetables labeled “no salt added”.

Throughout the school year, there will be new menu items added and less popular menu items deleted in order to offer students a lunch menu full of nutritional benefits and to pop with interest!
