Partnering with our Transportation department, 40 buses will be delivering meals every day, Monday through Friday, to our students. Students will be receiving a complete lunch for the day, and breakfast for the next morning that have been prepared with love. There is NO COST to any Colonial family for student meals!

Our NEW nutritious and delicious lunch menu will be delivering student favorites such as HOT, ready to eat, homemade beefaroni, chicken sandwiches, cheeseburgers, chicken tenders/nuggets, macaroni and cheese, hot or fresh vegetables, savory deli sandwiches, fresh fruit/fruit cups, and low fat milk.

Breakfast will be ready to heat and eat student favorites such as pigglestix and pancakes, whole grain muffins and reduced sugar cereal varieties, fresh fruit/100% juices and low fat milk. (please wash the whole fresh fruit at home before eating).
