About the Division of Food Services
It is our mission to make a significant contribution to the general well-being of each student and afford them the opportunity to fully participate in the education process by providing students with wholesome, nutritious and appetizing meals, served in a courteous manner, in a sanitary and pleasant dining environment.
This mission will be pursued in the most efficient and cost-effective means possible, and according to the regulatory and policy guidelines of the National School Lunch Act, Pennsylvania Department of Education, Philadelphia Department of Health, and the School District of Philadelphia.
The Division of Food Services values its contribution to the students, families, and staff in the School District of Philadelphia. The Division of Food Services looks forward to providing students and families with accessibility to state and Federal programs to improve overall student health. Now and in the future, the Division of Food Services will continue its mission of providing students with the dietary fuel necessary for learning. Together with schools, communities, and educators, the overall wellness of students will remain our main priority.
