The Ashland City Schools' Food Service Department, in partnership with the district and the greater school community, resolves to meet the nutritional and health needs of students, both through the provision of healthy, low-cost meals and through the provision of nutrition education.
Our Goal: Reduce waste for a more sustainable school! For School Year 2022-2023 - We are beginning our ECO friendly path by making some awesome changes in our Food Service Department. Everyone has their part to play when it comes to reducing waste. We believe there is no better way than going paperless! We already joined the Nutrislice Community, where we can post our daily Menu Online! Parents and teachers can monitor the menu daily, school nurses can easily find ingredients, calculate calories and carbs, all without using one piece of paper! There is even an APP to download on your mobile device designed for parents and students to use on the go. One of our favorite features: Students can RATE the foods so the ones they love are sure to stay and the ones they don't can go away! Visit http://ashlandcityschools.nutrislice.com/menu/ Another change we made, in our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint, was to make the switch from serving lunches on disposable foam trays to serving lunches on a washable and reusable lunch tray. We are asking our parents to do their part in helping our department "go paperless" by using our online Payschools system for next school year (and beyond!) - we will no longer send home countless free and reduced lunch application packets -and instead- are asking all parents to fill them out online electronically. We will be sending home more information on this at the end of the school year. Help will be available for those that do not have access to the internet! Any questions/comments/suggestions? Please call us. It's always good to work together for a better future!
