Food Service

Meals served at all schools in the RISD will be free for the 2023-2024 school year

The RISD Food Service Program strives to provide the highest quality foods and a variety of nutritional options for our students, updating our menus regularly with new and creative ideas. 

Our staff works closely with the Farm to School Program, integrating locally grown and produced foods into their menus wherever possible, including those from student gardens at all three schools and the Academy greenhouse.

Monthly staff meetings provide the opportunity to exchange ideas and convey input from students, teachers, and parents.
