School Lunch Program
The St. Joseph School Lunch Program is managed by P&T Lunch Services in partnership with St. Joseph School. Owners of P&T Lunch Services, Phuong and Todd Vien, provide healthy meals for students.
Lunch meals contain all natural proteins - going to 51% whole grain bases for pizza, pasta and breads. Based on the Public Schools USDA Food Guidelines, the kids are served a variety of proteins and vegetables, which are found in many dishes where students wouldn't suspect them. For example, the Macaroni & Cheese has a carrot puree in it. In the cafeteria, the children have access to condiments, hot water, two microwaves and two toasters. One microwave and one toaster is designated as “nut-free.”
The lunchroom is open for school lunches from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The 'A la Carte' station is also open after school from 2:45 p.m. - 3:15 p.m. for students to grab a snack prior to their sporting events or on their way to activities.
