We know parents are both busy and committed to their child’s healthy nutrition, which in turn impacts students' ability to concentrate at school. We also know that students’ experiences in the kitchen prior to joining the Millennium community range widely, from those who have never boiled an egg or peeled a carrot, to those who have grown up in the kitchens of their families’ restaurants. We’ve designed a simple meal program with two main components: optional direct access to School Foodies -- an affordable lunch service provider that offers a variety of health choices every day, and a weekly Food Literacy program that includes basic cooking skills, nutrition mini-lessons, mindful eating exercises, and field trips. Students have fun working together in teams to prepare food from scratch to share with their peers, and will learn about topics such as processed versus whole foods, the gut biome, food label literacy, sustainability eating and farming, and more.
Ordering from School Foodies is optional. You will need to create an account directly with them and manage payment and lunch selection on your own. For families that have participated in the past, please note that this year, because we have moved our Food Literacy curriculum to the afternoons, we will not have communal lunches on Wednesdays, and you should order a lunch for every day of the week, including Wednesday unless otherwise advised.
Note that for families who are on full scholarship, discounted meals will be provided. However, you must still set up an online account so that you can manage your meals.
