Welcome to the website of the Nutrition Services Department of the Needham Public Schools. We hope you find the information you need to learn about our program for which we are very proud.

Our goal is to serve a variety of appetizing, satisfying and nutritionally sound lunches in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. We view the school cafeteria as a nutrition education experience, where we teach by example with the delicious and healthy food choices we offer.

Ruth Griffin, Nutrition Services Director, is a Registered Dietitian. Menus are planned following USDA guidelines, keeping health and taste as priorities. New menu items are introduced quite regularly, especially salads and new vegetable recipes. Nutrient information is available for all foods served (See Menus and Information on this web page).

The Nutrition Services staff are ServSafe trained and certified, and take pride in serving carefully prepared food in their clean kitchens.

Bon Appetit!
