We are Nourishing the Valley!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

No time to menu plan or meal prep? We have you covered!

The Great Valley School District Food & Nutrition Services Department is excited to continue Nourish Program on virtual learning days. Our meal bundles are created to make breakfast and lunch easy for everyone!  The Nourish program will operate under the USDA’s National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. We have simply modified our delivery style to fit the needs of our virtual learners and hybrid learners. We will continue to provide the same meal components and follow the same nutritional guidelines as if we were in person.

Starting on August 31, we will offer meal bundles that contain breakfast and lunch for seven days a week. Families may pick up their meal bundles at two convenient times.

Save time by ordering online in advance!

Nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

The Food & Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. Our goal is to provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
