Pittsburgh Public Schools Food Service
Pittsburgh Public Schools' cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced to provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school.
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Starting in 2014-2015, school lunches are meeting additional standards requiring:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
- More whole grains
- Less sodium
We’re always working to offer Pittsburgh Public Schools students healthier and tastier choices. In addition, plans are being made to pilot the following programs in schools:
- Fuel Up to Play 60
- Power Up, Eat Right
- Chef Partnerships
- Nutrition Advisory Councils
- Breakfast & Lunch
- All schools offer free breakfast and lunch to all students from Early Childhood classrooms to 12th grade classrooms !
- We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria.
