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.

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.
