USD 320 Food Service

Food Service Director: Laura Fails

Our Child Nutrition Program employees may not see the inside of a classroom very often, but they do make a daily contribution to your child’s educational success. It’s really a very simple recipe.  Research shows that kids who eat well learn better. 

So the hard work going on in our school restaurant every day isn't just about preparing and serving meals to our kids.  It’s also about helping to make a good education possible. We’re proud of our people who do all the hard work, largely unseen by parents, students, and other staff members.  Our staff is truly dedicated to your child’s educational success! So don’t be fooled by the aprons – we’re here to help work miracles for our kids every day!

Follow us on Facebook for up-to-date information about our program and menus!
