Snacks

Two snacks are provided by our program daily: We serve one organic snack in the morning and one in the afternoon. Snacks are usually one whole grain and one seasonal fresh fruit. We serve local, organic, seasonal fruits and vegetables from Mountain Bounty Farm which is part of Community Supported Agriculture.

Lunch

Parents provide their child’s lunch. Please send a frozen cold pack in your child's lunch.  For a suggested menu and portion sizes please visit the Food page.  On occasion we may have a child with a severe allergy, such as a peanut allergy.  We make every effort to accomodate allergies and special diets.

Table Manners
We serve snacks and lunch in a communal dining setting with children eating off of stoneware plates and using metal (child size) utensils.  Staff eats with the children while modeling appropriate table manners, good conversation, and excellent eating habits.  We believe that children learn best by doing!

Children in our preschool program also brush their teeth after lunch with their own toothbrush brought from home.
