SAU 29 school cafeterias are meeting and exceeding new strict federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced, portion controlled and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school.

School meals offer students 1% or fat free milk, a large variety of fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. School lunches must also meet additional standards requiring:

Age-appropriate calorie limits 

Larger servings of vegetables and fruits 
(students must take at least one serving of produce at both breakfast and lunch)
A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes 

Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
Whole grains rich foods
Reduced sodium levels

School meals are a great value and are convenient for busy families too!

Keene Food Services Updates:

Menus will now be on-line only!

We are going Green and saving over 50,000 sheets of paper each year! The menus are available in our menu section on this website and on each school's web sites as well.

Important Procedure at the Elementary Level

Any student owing $(25.00) or more, purchasing hot lunch, will have to take a choice of sandwich as their entrée.  They will not be allowed to take the main entrée listed on the menu.

We encourage you to talk with your children and explain what will be happening if they have an outstanding balance. If you have a large balance and would like to set up a payment plan, we would be happy to speak with you.

We will continue to send home the balance notifications on a weekly basis with the students, but know that they do not always make it to the parents. We do make phone calls and send letters home via regular mail for the larger balances as well. You may always call the school cafeteria to check on your child’s balance.
