Welcome to the Tahoma Nutrition Services Department

Our department includes kitchen managers, food service assistants, food van drivers and administrative staff. We aim to serve nutritious and economical meals in a clean and safe environment. We support the education of our students by promoting lifelong healthy eating habits and fitness practices.  Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet federal and state requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. In support of Tahoma’s vision to operate schools with sustainability in mind, we work closely with School Green Teams to employ sustainability practices in food production and service.  As a part of Tahoma’s Wellness Policy, we work with schools and the community to support student achievement and provide a learning environment for children that promotes good health. Children who regularly eat breakfast and lunch focus better, maintain good energy level, are less likely to be absent, and most important, learn better.
