Food & Nutrition

MHS works with schools to foster a healthy environment that emphasizes opportunities to learn about and practice healthy eating. This comprehensive approach addresses nutrition education, messages about food on campus, available foods in vending machines, concession stands, classroom parties and at-school celebrations. Additionally, our school nutrition services supply meals and snacks that meet federal nutrition standards.
