Nutrition Services

Last Updated: 7/26/2021 6:18 PM


Laramie County School District #2 recognizes that well-nourished children are better equipped to learn. Providing healthy food and nutrition education are the key ingredients in educating students to make choices that will develop into life-long, healthy eating habits. 

Universal Free Meals for LCSD#2

The state has approved our application to offer free meals to all students for the 2021-22 school year.  Please be aware that you will be responsible for any A La Carte items purchased.   

Emergency Food Assistance

Free breakfast & lunch is available for ALL children under 18 during the month of June.  Meals can be picked up curbside at Burns Elementary School north side of the building from 9am to 12pm on Tuesdays & Thursdays during the month of June.  Follow the signs to the back parking lot and look for the white tent.


School Meals are Safe

Food safety is our top priority! The CDC, FDA and the World Health Organization all stress that there is no evidence COVID-19 spreads via food or food packaging. Whether meals are served in school or at the On-the Go kiosks, school meal preparation is conducted in strict adherence with federal, state and local safety regulations. In addition, CDC and FDA procedures are in place to protect school nutrition staff and the students they serve, including the use of Personal Protective Equipment, additional cleaning of food preparations and service areas, and regular training on proper hygiene practices and food safety measures.

Food Service Provider

LCSD#2's school food service provider is Chartwells. They offer a variety of services to our district, including provision of school meals and snacks for all schools in compliance with the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs, as well as catering for events, meetings, and concessions. Their promise is "to extend our passion, dedication, knowledge and enthusiasm into serving each student delicious and nutritious meals."

National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs
LCSD#2’s food services operates under the federally funded National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the School Breakfast Program (SBP). These programs are designed to promote the health and well-being of our children by providing nutritious meals to children in public and private schools as well as residential child care institutions. Schools participating in these programs are required to provide meals that contain one-third of the Recommended Dietary Intakes (RDIs) for protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C and calories with no more than 30% of the calories from fat and less than 10% of the calories from saturated fat.

Our district offers our students the following meal programs:

  • Elementary Schools:

    • Breakfast in the Classroom

    • Lunch in the cafeteria

  • JR/SR High Schools:

    • Breakfast before school - at the JR/SR high commons

    • Second Chance breakfast - at the mobile cart between 2nd and 3rd hours

    • Lunch - in the elementary cafeteria

    • On the Go lunch - at the kiosks located in the JR/SR commons

Farm to School Program
LCSD#2 strives to provide our students with healthy, local foods by participating in the farm to school program.  If you would like to donate. The goals of our program are to:

  • Serve healthy, high-quality meals to our students

  • Increase participation in our meal programs

  • Promote agricultural, health, and nutrition education

  • Support our local and regional producers

  • Decrease plate waste

Sponsors donations will be featured in our school cafeterias, social media, and morning announcements.

Offer Versus Serve
LCSD#2 practices "offer vs. serve", which allows our students to select at least three of five food items offered during lunch, and one of the four items offered during breakfast - with one of the items being the required serving of fruit or vegetable - for a complete meal. By offering food choices, students are more likely to eat the food items selected rather than throw them away. As a result, Offer Versus Serve can save school districts money through avoided purchasing and disposal costs.  

Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program
Our District also participates in the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP), which provides all children in participating elementary schools with a variety of free, fresh fruits and vegetables at a designated snack time during the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options, and is seen as an important catalyst for change in efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. LCSD#2 is able to offer this program in all of our elementary schools for the 2019-2020 school year, through grant funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), administered by the Wyoming Department of Education.

Smart Snacks

All foods sold at school during the school day are required to meet nutrition standards. The Smart Snacks in School regulation applies to foods sold a la carte, in the school store, vending machines, and any other venues where food is sold to students. Click the link below for more information.
