In the first month of school, the School Nutrition staff at Park View High School successfully served 2,500 meals to students during their After School Fuel Program. Introduced in January 2017, After School Fuel provides a nutritious meal at no cost to all students who attend Park View. This program expanded from three days last year to five days this school year due to the tremendous effort by the LCPS Department of Transportation and the Administration at Park View to provide late buses at the school so that those students who want to enjoy a meal can eat and then get on the bus.
Students can select from a variety of their favorite menu options each day including: chicken bites, steak and cheese subs, orange chicken with rice, yogurt and bagel boxes, fruit and yogurt smoothies, chef salads, and pizza. The meals are served daily from 4:05 P.M- 5:15 P.M in the cafeteria.
School Nutrition will be launching their second After School Fuel site at Sugarland Elementary later this month. For more information about this program or School Nutrition Services, please contact Stefanie Dove, RDN at Stefanie.Dove@LCPS.org
