Food and Nutrition Services
We partner with SFE to provide students with three fresh and nutritious meals to fuel their learning.
We are pleased to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner options for students and staff members. This program is designed to be a service that is self-sustaining, meaning that the costs charged for food items need to pay for the food, personnel costs and other fees associated with bringing the food services to you.
BSD #124 WELLNESS PROGRAM
The Belton School District Board of Education adopted a district Wellness Program to promote student health, facilitate student learning of lifelong healthy habits, and increase student achievement (Board policy ADF).
In an effort to support the Wellness Program, and to assist you in joining the effort, we would like to highlight some areas of particular interest to parents:
*At least 50% of the food and beverages available at school parties must meet the intermediate Eat Smart requirements:
*Foods of minimal nutritional value will not be made available by the school during school hours, including classroom rewards.
We will all be learning together. While we are not going to strictly monitor everything students bring from home in their personal lunches, we do encourage you to be aware of our efforts and join us as you pack your child’s lunch. This is a perfect time to increase awareness of the nutritional value of the foods we purchase for our families.
Please contact the school or Central Office for a comprehensive explanation of the guidelines and procedures included in our Wellness Program.
