Serving Nutritious Meals

To ensure that our children are getting the best, the Afterschool Meals Program has standards to ensure that the meals offered provide the nutrition our children need to fuel their learning and enrichment. Below is information on the meal patterns that are required for meal and snack service, along with sample menus to give you an idea of how those standards apply to actual meals.
