• Food Service Program 
    The Lexington Public Schools Food Service Program is an important component to the overall educational experience designed to support students, staff, and the overall community by promoting lifelong healthy eating habits, encouraging a positive learning experience for students, and by providing nutritious and satisfying food in a safe and positive environment. All menu items meet National School Lunch Program (NSLP), Health Hunger Free Kids Act (HHFKA), and state nutrition guidelines and are analyzed and approved by a Registered Dietician (RD). In addition to the previously described areas, Lexington's Food Service program is compliant with the School Committee's Wellness Policy.

    Lexington's Local Wellness Policy (LWP):
    Lexington Public Schools has adopted a strong Wellness Policy (Policy ADF) and developed corresponding Implementation Guidelines to address a multitude of areas pertaining to student wellness. This policy is reviewed and discussed at the School Department's School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) at least annually. The goal of this discussion is to discuss with all impacted stakeholders the status of our implementation and identidy new areas of focus for the coming year. Some of these identified areas are focuses of implementation and some may influence changes in the actual policy. 
    The School Committee has a Policy Subcommittee that meets periodically to review policies and recommend updates to the full School Committee. This is an alternate opportunity to share feedback with the District. The Policy Subcommittee has established practices pertaining to policy review, updates, and recommendations. 
    Any member of the public who wishes to raise a concern surrounding or provide any feedback for improvements is encouraged to share at the public SHAC meetings or at a School Committee Policy Subcommittee.
