The School Lunch program is an integral part of the Rockport Public School System. We strive to meet the needs of all the students & staff, both nutritionally and socially, by serving a nutritious breakfast and lunch of high quality in a cheerful, pleasant, and welcoming atmosphere. It is our role to encourage everyone to eat breakfast and lunch that conforms to the dietary guidelines for healthy Americans while recognizing the individual preferences of each person who participates in our program. Our menus reflect the students' tastes by offering the choices most popular to students. All lunches include an assortment of vegetables & fruit. A variety of milk (skim, low-fat, and fat-free flavored milk) is offered with each meal.
