The Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools' Child Nutrition Department provides all students with well-balanced, nutritious, high quality, meal options that promote good physical and mental development.
Child Nutrition Services manages the cafeterias at all PLSAS elementary schools, middle schools and high school, along with the Lake House Cafe coffee shop at PLHS.
Child Nutrition Services continues their focus on local foods and cleaner labels for our students. This year they will be providing students free range local turkey products from Ferndale Farms in Cannon Falls; produce from Wozupi Gardens in Shakopee; free range grass-fed beef franks from Thousand Hills Cattle Company in Cannon Falls; and seasonal variety apples from Thompson’s Hillcrest Orchard in Elko, along with many other local produce items that are grown right in Minnesota.
Feeding students healthy quality meals plays a role in helping students reach their full potential. In addition to fueling healthy bodies, our staff will be doing educational events within our cafeterias throughout the year to educate students on where their food comes from and also help create lifelong healthy eating habits.
We know that communicating nutrition information and daily menus is important. That’s why we've implemented Nutrislice, an online interactive menu where students and parents can check out the nutritional content of our menu, a description of the menu item, as well as allergen and carbohydrate details. You can also rate each menu item by clicking on the number of stars.
Prior Lake High School will remain off the National School Meals Program, continuing to allow us greater flexibility in providing healthy, delicious meals and snacks that meet the needs and expectations of students, parents and staff.
