The goal of TPSS Child Nutrition Department is to provide a nutritious, delicious, and affordable meals to our students.
Students are offered five menu items daily for lunch. Of the five items offered each student must select three items. Due to the new USDA regulations, all students in Pre-K-12 must select a fruit or vegetable in addition to or as one of the three items. USDA has implemented these changes to encourage students to eat more fruits and vegetables. Effective July 1, 2014, the USDA has lowered their requirements for total calories, sodium and saturated fat for all menus.
Elementary menus offer multiple breakfast choices daily and one lunch choice daily. High Schools menus also offer multiple breakfast choices daily and a choice of main entree, entree salad or sandwich for lunch. This school year, middle/jr high menus will have multiple breakfast choices daily and a choice of main entree (Mama's Kitchen) or sandwich for lunch. Our menus consist of nutritionally balanced choices that include a variety of fruit, vegetables, low-fat milk, whole grains and meat or meat alternate.
** All menus are subject to change based on availability of food.
