ASTEC Charter Schools 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 and large walk-in refrigerators to keep fresh produce.
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.
Money for meals will only be taken between 8:00 a.m. and 8:25 a.m. in the middle school cafeteria.
Students are only allowed to charge twice. After two charges they will need to bring their lunch. Middle school scholars will pick up breakfast in the cafeteria, and high school scholars will pick up breakfast in the multipurpose room.
During Covid-19 protocols, lunches will be eaten in the classrooms.
Students, who are at school for in-person classes, will be given their breakfast and lunch at the end of the day for the next day of distance learning.
Scholars who choose to bring their own meals are not allowed to bring pop, other sugary drinks, chips or other junk foods with little or no nutritional value. All scholars must eat! If a scholar refuses to eat, the parent will be called. It is unhealthy and dangerous for growing children not to eat.
