Welcome to the Nutrition Services Department! We serve over 5,000 breakfasts and 11,500 lunches each school day to Highline students.
Research has shown that there is a crucial relationship between nutrition and academic performance. Highline strives to offer quality meals at affordable prices to set our students up for success every day. Monthly menus are planned by a Registered Dietitian to meet USDA specifications based on the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Highline employees in three production kitchens throughout the district bake fresh rolls, french bread, cornbread, and desserts with whole grains and sometimes added fruits, vegetables or legumes. We also prepare many entrees from scratch including spaghetti and meat sauce, lasagna, chicken salad, and macaroni and cheese.
Farm to School
Farm to school is the name used to describe programs that are promoting and serving locally produced foods in school cafeterias. We are commited to serving a variety of Washington grown fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy. We are excited to be participating in Farm to School, growing each year in what we can do to support local agriculture and bringing it into our cafeterias to serve our students. We offer salad bars at each school location where students can fill their plates with a colorful array of fruits and veggies. We have been fortunate to partner with great vendors that make this possible by sourcing locally.
