The K-12 Acton-Boxborough Regional School Lunch Program consists of eight on-site kitchens including six elementary, one junior high school and one high school. We serve hot lunches daily in all of the schools, and we plan three different menus monthly to reflect the students' tastes.
The elementary menu is planned with the choices most popular to children in grades K-6. The junior high has several selections. The high school has even more choices. There are four serving lines including a pizza line, grill selections, deli sandwich line, entree line, and a fresh fruit and vegetable bar. The main entree line offers a variety of choices daily such as pasta, taco, salads and hot subs. All High School lunches include 8 oz. milk of their choice, choice of fresh vegetables, and fresh fruit. All bread products are whole wheat: hot dog and hamburger buns and sub rolls. Our sandwiches are made on wheat or white wraps. The high school also has a snack bar with a wide variety of healthy snack choices including bagels, spring water, pretzels, flavored water and breakfast items.
The lunch program is an integral part of our school system. We are continually remodeling and updating our cafeterias and kitchens to keep up with the changing items. Our menus are revised monthly according to food trends in the food service business. We strive to meet the needs of all the students, both nutritionally and socially, by serving lunch in a cheerful, pleasant atmosphere.
