Food Service Department
The mission of the Lowell Community Charter Public School Food Service Program is to serve nutritious foods that support academic success and encourage lifelong healthy eating patterns. The Food Service Program currently serves breakfast and lunch at all schools. We strive to meet the needs of all students, both nutritionally and socially, by serving meals in a welcoming, pleasant atmosphere.
The School Lunch Program
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritionally balanced, free breakfast, lunch and after school snack to children each school day.
Our school program complies with the United States Department of Agriculture’s food based menu-planning system and nutrient standards, providing meals that meet 1/3 of the RDA (recommended dietary allowance) for calories, as well as required levels of other key nutrients, including fat, saturated fat, protein, vitamin A & C, iron, and calcium. Hot lunches are served daily in all the schools. Students may choose from a variety of lunch options, including alternate meals at all grade levels.
Our menus are developed monthly and menus are posted on our website, and paper copies are available at your child’s school, in the office area.
