ASTEC Charter School student scholars and staff will tell you our school breakfast and lunch are second to none! While many schools use prepackaged, processed foods and warming ovens, ASTEC has a full chef’s kitchen complete with stoves and ovens, large walk-in refrigerators to keep fresh produce and two salad bars. ASTEC serves organic produce when it is available and serves only produce in season and in close proximity to the school.
ASTEC contracts with Keystone for its kitchen management and meal preparation. Keystone collaborates with ASTEC’s HealthCorps coordinator and school staff to plan healthy, nutritious meals prepared from “scratch” every day.
