Student Nutrition Department and School Menus

Roland Cabading - Student Nutrition Supervisor

"Providing Food For Thought!"

Our Mission - The mission of the Fort Mill Student Nutrition Department is to support the education process of the Fort Mill School District (FMSD) by providing quality meals that meet USDA and state guidelines, good customer service, and to be fiscally responsible.  We put "Children First!"
Our Menus - We use a traditional meal pattern that consists of 5 required components (meat or meat alternative, grain, fruit, vegetable, and milk).  All students have 4 choices of fruit and vegetable servings. We strive daily to provide a fresh fruit and/or vegetable. 
All our sandwiches are served on whole grain bread and a choice of 4 fruits/vegetables are offered at the elementary, middle, and high schools.  Our breakfast menus meet 1/4 of the daily nutritional requirements for children and our lunch menus meet 1/3 of the daily nutritional requirements as set by the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Our Customers - The customer service we provide entails working with schools, the district, and the community. In the schools, our dietitian works to educate students about health and wellness. The cafeteria teams provide a friendly atmosphere as they serve students. In the district, we play an active part on the Wellness Committee and are part of a liaison committee that meets with students, administrators, and parents. In the community, we assist parents with lunch applications and provide nutritional information about the menus.
Our Services - The student nutrition department utilizes a business model to break even. The funding for the department to cover expenses is based on the number of meals served daily. The pricing of meals is developed just to cover expenses. We utilize state and federal procurement practices to insure we receive quality food and services at competitive pricing from our vendors. We budget revenue and expenses for each cafeteria operation just like a corporation.
