The campus menu experience will include, but may not be limited to, the following items:
- hot breakfast bowl of the day
- hot breakfast sandwich
- parfait cups
- fresh fruit cups
- fruit smoothies
- fresh baked muffins and pastries
- hot and cold cereal selections
- scratch made entrees with vegetarian and allergy friendly options
- whole grain sides
- fresh steamed roasted or grilled vegetables
- fresh made salads and upscale sandwiches
- seasonal grab and go options
- chef designed specials
- fresh baked cookies and desserts made from scratch
Younger elementary students enjoy petite portions of the breakfast and lunch entrees, while regular size options address the appetite of the older age group and minimize the post consumption waste concerns.
Middle school students are offered morning snack break and lunch at the middle school campus.
At the high school, the snack bar is open for an additional 45 minutes after school, offering all grab and go items with the addition of protein packs, acai bowls, ice cream, musubis, chicken strips, french fries and beverages. Beverages offered will include a choice of milk, 100% fruit juice sports drinks and WaterWorks, our fruit infused water program.
Chef Jensen will work with any family that may have concerns regarding the dietary needs of their child. In addition to the posted allergy board, all foods are labeled and he is available throughout lunch to answer any questions the students may have. He can also be reached by email at Jensen.Manuel@compass-usa.com
We understand the importance of educating your children about what they are eating. We do our best and take every opportunity to teach them something new about the foods they see in the dining room. Our Food Focus program teaches about specific foods around the world and our Healthy Foods Matter program shows healthy foods in a new light. We always encourage your children to try something new. We have a Registered Dietician available to be scheduled for additional wellness and nutrition education as needed.
We are proud to lead the foodservice industry with groundbreaking policies such as:
- Championing local family farmers and Fair Trade
- Sourcing foods that are produced with minimal use or free of chemicals and antibiotics
- Supporting campaigns that reward the efforts of farmers and laborers
- Sourcing proteins from suppliers that promote the humane welfare of farm animals.
We know that telling children about the importance of nutrition will not always translate into the selections they make during lunch. Instead, we must demonstrate that eating nutritious foods can also be fun, creative and delicious. Chef Manuel Jensen’s Tastings program empowers students to try new foods at their own pace. They have the opportunity to sample unfamiliar foods in small bites, rate them and let him know if they would like to see them on upcoming menus. In this way, they are helping build the program they want to see.
