Food Services Mission Statement

The Aspen School District Food Service Department in the Aspen Elementary, Middle and High Schools is a district funded program not part of the State or Federal lunch programs.  The goal of the department is to ensure that all students have access to delicious, healthy, seasonal meals in order to grow their bodies, minds, and futures. All meals are made from locally grown, sustainable ingredients to the greatest extent possible while respecting the Districts Strategic Plan to be Stewards of Resources. We also want all students to understand the relationship between food, health, nutrition, cultures, environment, and business; the relationship children have with food will evolve into a circle benefiting not just themselves, but society as a whole.
