Food & Nutrition Program

Nutrition & Meals 

CHEFIt has been the goal of City High to offer a fresh and nutritious food program for our students and staff. City Charter High School participates in the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program. The move to our new building allows us to provide a healthier and more varied breakfast and lunch menus. Daily breakfast is available for every student. For lunch, students have the option to purchase a full meal or individual a la carte items.  


Starting in the 2021-22 school year, all students are eligible to receive a free nutritional breakfast and lunch each school day through the national school lunch and school breakfast program. This is provided without fees or applications.


Breakfast

Breakfast is served from 7:00-7:40 AM Tuesday-Friday.
Meal includes a breakfast sandwich or cereal accompanied by a milk and fruit. A la carte items may include yogurt, granola and breakfast bars. 

Lunch

Meal includes a main entrée accompanied with a vegetable and juice, or fruit and milk. A la carte items are available for individual purchase. A la carte items may include bowl of soup, side dishes, fruit, milk and juice. 

The cafeteria at City Charter High School functions just as an employee cafeteria at a business.   Students are expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior.  

Students are assigned to a lunch period each day. Students are required to go to the cafeteria and remain there during their respective lunch periods. Lunch periods are thirty minutes long and allow ample time for students to eat lunch and have some time for relaxation and socializing. 

NO STUDENT IS PERMITTED TO LEAVE SCHOOL GROUNDS DURING THE LUNCH PERIODS.
