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.
Each Monday from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM take-home meals for the week may be picked up at the middle school cafeteria. This will include 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches per student. Meals are free through December for all ASTEC scholars who have turned in a lunch form regardless of whether or not the family qualifies for free or reduced lunch.
Elementary will now pick up from the middle school.
For meal pick up, follow the middle school driveline route and line up in your car. Drive to the middle school entrance where ASTEC staff will meet you at your car to give you the meals.
The ASTEC middle school cafeteria is located at 2401 NW 23rd Street. The middle school entrance is directly south of the Kentucky Fried Chicken at the 23rd street and Flynn Drive intersection.
Please show your student driveline number so we can track distribution for food service record keeping.
