Ensure that qualified child nutrition professionals provide students with access to a variety of affordable, nutritious, and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students. Further, ORCSD will accommodate the health, religious, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the student body in meal planning; and will provide clean, safe, and pleasant settings and adequate time for students to eat

Participate in the available federal school meal programs, to the maximum extent possible, including the School Breakfast Program, National School Lunch Program and other related programs
