Philomath School District contracts with the Corvallis School District Food & Nutrition Services to provide healthy meals for their students. This has been a positive arrangement for both districts. We now have developed a combined district full-year elementary school calendar menu that will be given to all elementary students at their school to be taken home. It is filled with program information, fun facts, and nutrition education. Much of the artwork used was submitted by elementary students for this project.
Philomath menus are developed along with Corvallis menus. Much of the food is prepared at the Corvallis Central Kitchen and sent to each school kitchen where Food Service personnel ready it for serving. Some items are made in the individual school kitchen to ensure students are getting the best quality meals. Like the Corvallis schools, Philomath schools also offer full salad bars to their students in an effort to encourage them to eat more fruits and vegetables and also as a vegetarian lunch option, offering local produce when available.
Nutrition and healthy eating has been in the spotlight and bringing increasing awareness to the health-related risks of being overweight or eating foods of low nutritional value. Diabetes and many diseases are affected by certain foods that are eaten, and knowing certain facts help to control the effects of these diseases. We provide a nutritional analysis of the foods we serve in our cafeterias to give individuals and families the information they need.
