Welcome to St. Pius X School Nutrition Services! Our goal is to make available delicious and

nutritionally balanced meals to all students therefore promoting and enhancing student learning.

Our nutrition program is a part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and is regulated

and supported by federal and state guidelines. These guidelines assist in allowing nutrition

programs to offer nutritionally dense foods at reasonable prices. Throughout this webpage, you

will find informational resources to help guide your family through our program.

 

We are very excited to be a part of the Team Nutrition network of schools! This partnership expands St. Pius X School’s health and wellness goals as well as providing our lunch program with additional fun resources to engage students and help them learn about nutrition and lifelong healthy habits.

Negative Balance Information

At St. Pius, we are very appreciative of families staying ahead of their lunch account balances. If extenuating circumstances exist that might make paying the lunch account balance challenging, please feel free to contact us. We ask that negative balances over $15.00 do not become habitual. Thank you for helping us keep negative balances manageable.

Food Allergies


We pride ourselves on working one-on-one with families with special dietary needs. Alternative menus and substitutions are made available for problematic foods. Please note, food allergies must be documented using the below form and on file with both the school nurse and with the food service director.

Celebration & Birthday Treats

Families can order birthday and other celebration treats through the lunch program! Our famous

cookies and other snack items can be ordered for classroom parties. We ask that you let us know

at least a week in advance so that we have time to order the ingredients for your student's celebration.

Feel free to break a dozen to match the number of students in the classroom.
