Our Mission

The mission of Global Scholars Academy School Nutrition Services is to distribute quality meals and institute a nutritious program which supports the educational and physical growth of scholars.

In order to achieve this mission, we are dedicated to:

  • Concentrating on the nutritional needs of our scholars
  • Educating scholars on making healthy choices as a lifelong dietary habit

The Breakfast Program

Breakfast is offered daily before the start of the day.
A breakfast consists of:

1) An entrée made with grain and/or meat/meat alternate
2) Milk
3) Fruit and a juice

All scholars will be required to take all items in order to receive the meal at free meal prices and then can decide to eat or give away. Only a complete school breakfast can qualify for scholar free meal prices.

The Lunch Program

Lunch consists of:

  • Meat/Meat alternate
  • Grain
  • Vegetable
  • Fruit
  • Milk

Scholars must take all items in order to receive the meal at free meal prices and then can decide to eat or give away . The menus follow the Enhanced-Food Based Guidelines established by the USDA and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which assure breakfast meets one-fourth and lunch meets one-third of the daily recommended intake of calories, fat, proteins, vitamins and minerals for scholars. Child Nutrition provides meatless meals for scholars as an option to dietary or lifestyle choices. Each month the menu features 1 meatless entrée.

Global Scholars Academy meals meet the USDA guidelines for low saturated fat, cholesterol, zero added trans fats, whole grains, high fiber and reduced sodium.

Health and Wellness Policy

Global Scholars Academy applies practices that reduce childhood obesity and enhance scholars’ ability to learn by executing healthy eating, physical activity in a tobacco and drug-free culture while demonstrating habits that support lifelong physical and mental wellness.
