Crestwood Food Service; is a self supporting department within the Crestwood School District that is dedicated to nutritional excellence for our Crestwood students, thereby providing enhancement and support to the educational process. Our motto is "NOT your typical school food service:" Our goal is to supply exceptional meals at an affordable price while providing fast, friendly and personal service. Crestwood food service uses no taxpayer dollars to operate, in fact we contribute a substantial amount to the district general fund!

Still Hungry?
Crestwood food service has a new procedure which allows students "second
and more" helpings of fresh fruits and vegetables. If your student is still hungry after a
serving of bread, protein, fruit, vegetable and milk they can receive additional helpings of
fresh fruits and vegetables, free! You can find nutrition Information from USDA on school
meals here: http://www.fns.usda.gov/fns/ including the "My Plate" project
where students can learn about balancing calories, colors and portion sizes to fit their
nutritional needs.

Don't Sit Still!
Students can achieve their best performance by combining good nutrition
with physical activity. Two of the most Important factors that lead to a healthy lifestyle are
choosing a healthy diet and being physically fit. When your student's nutritional needs are
met it is easier to focus and learn. When they are physically fit they are more alert, more
positive and enjoy a better quality of life.
