Online Lunch Services

Welcome to Food Services

At Elkhart Community Schools Food Services, we know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students’ health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

New USDA Guidelines and Meal Patterns

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

-Pam Melcher, Director of Food Services

Elkhart Community Schools works very hard to provide healthy meals within the guidelines of Federal and State programs by continually monitoring food purchases, production, and consumption.  We provide offer versus serve for each meal, monitor the food students choose, and adjust menus to minimize production.
