May 5, 2022 2:41:22 PM / by Rob Teplansky

In May, we are offering more than 40 different entree selections throughout the month! That means you could go through the entire month without serving the same lunch twice. But if you wanted to, you could, because we also offer 2 - 3 different selections each day. That's flexibility! Continue reading to learn more about our May menu and download a copy.

May...I have another?

Satisfying an entire classroom of picky eaters is tough. And when your choices are limited, it is even more difficult. Are you finding that you are serving the same lunches, week after week? Do you hear, "Not that again!" more often than you'd like? Are parents pushing you to offer more vegetarian options, or options from more diverse ethnic and cultural traditions?

If your current meal program solution doesn't deliver the variety or the control you want, it's time to explore Smart Lunches. Here are just a few of the kid-favorite lunches we're serving in May - lunches that will have your kids asking if they may have another!

  • Turkey Tacos
  • Build-Your-Own Whole Grain English Muffin Pizza
  • Sweet and Sour Chicken
  • Pasta Bake
  • Whole Grain French Toast with Eggs
  • Fiesta Chicken
  • Chicken Nuggets
  • Korean BBQ Turkey
  • Lentil Curry
  • Baked Beans & Veggie Sausage

These exceptional entrees are paired with tasty sides like, cucumbers, mashed sweet potatoes, vegetarian baked beans, peas, steamed carrots, Italian green beans, pears, apples, oranges or mango.

Food Allergies

If you have children with specific food allergies, we have at least one selection every day that is free of the major food allergies. When you download the menu, you will see how the selection is marked with the designations, Egg Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Soy Free, or Sesame Free.
