Welcome to School Nutrition

  • Welcome to School Nutrition The St. Louis Park Public Schools Department of School Nutrition strives to ensure that each student receives healthy, nutritious, and affordable meals from professional and friendly staff.

    We know that when kids eat well, they are better learners and are more attentive in class. Our goal at St. Louis Park Public Schools is to serve our students, teachers, district, and community members a well-balanced, plant-strong diet.
