Did You Know?
Fun health and nutrition facts about the Moreland School District Meal Program.

  • The Moreland School District Meal Program has been 100% trans-fat free since 2006.
  • Many entrees - such as pizzas, corn dogs, cereal, and muffins - are made from whole grains.
  • All menus meet federal and state guidelines of less than 30% total fat, and less than 10% saturated fat.
  • We do not fry any foods - chicken nuggets, breaded chicken patty sandwiches, french fried potatoes, orange chicken, and corn dogs are all baked.
  • Our milk section is all natural, rBST-free.
  • Ingredients and menu selections are low fat or low sugar whenever possible.
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables are acquired through local California growers.
  • We no longer use styrofoam trays at the elementary schools. We have switched to a reusable, washable red basket as a meal tray, helping the environment by limiting excess trash disposal. Students at Moreland Middle School use recycled cardboard food trays.
  • Moreland School District has a Wellness Committee that discusses the overall well being of the Moreland community. They discuss and implement programs to improve all levels of wellness: communication, education, physical activity, and all food at our schools - meal programs, classroom parties, and other food related events. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, contact Rick Kessler, Food Services Consultant, at 408.874.2962.
 
Moreland School District Wellness Policy
Food and Nutrition Highlights from Moreland's Wellness Policy:
 
  • All non-compliant Smart Snack food items cannot be served or sold from 12:01AM until 30 minutes after school.
  • To ensure students are nourished with a proper meal, classroom parties with Smart Snack compliant food will be scheduled only after lunchtime.
  • All food and beverages marketed or promoted to students on the school campus during the school day must meet or exceed the USDA Smart Snacks standards.  This may include:
    • Advertisements in school publications or school mailings
    • Free product samples, taste tests or coupons of a product, or free samples displaying advertising of a product
    • Food and beverage marketing often includes oral, written or graphic statements.
  • California Food Act requires a permit for all home prepared foods.  Moreland School District cannot serve any home baked food products to students at any time for liability reasons.  MEF and Home and School Clubs can serve prepared foods after the school day or on weekends.
