Proper nutrition is fundamental for the success of academic programs. Moorhead Area Public Schools follows nutrition standards to help fight hunger and obesity. Lunch menus with complete nutrition information can be found in PowerSchool.
School districts across the nation are facing unprecedented disruptions in the food supply chain that cause menu changes with minimal notice. Please know that we are working to minimize the amount of changes made and will make every effort to communicate with school communities and school nurses about any changes that happen. Please talk to your child about the potential for these variations. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
