Nutrition Program

Mission Statement

The Scarborough School Nutrition Program provides safe, healthy and appetizing meals for our students. Our meals are planned using nutrient analysis which defines amounts of protein, calories, fat, and Vitamin A, Vitamin C, calcium and sodium that must be served for each age group.

The food is prepared and served in a clean safe environment. 
All school nutrition workers are trained and certified as sanitarians. 
Our healthy school meals help the students achieve academically and physically to the best of their abilities. It is well-documented in scientific data that a hungry child will not reach his/her greatest level of achievement. Healthy school meals provide a learning laboratory for the child to make good food choices that he/she will carry into his/her adult life.

FREE Meals FOR 2022-2023 SCHOOL YEAR

As a general reminder, all breakfast and lunch meals for all students in Scarborough Schools are free for this school year 2022-2023. All existing students whose parents have an account will be able to order breakfast and lunch using the same procedure as last year, from the Nutrislice app on a device or at https://www.scarboroughschools.org/ (at the top of the page click “Quick links”, then go to School Lunch for all meal menus).

All Kindergarten and new students to the district will have to make a Nutrislice account through the Nutrislice app or through https://scarboroughschools.nutrislice.com/menu/create-accountbefore they can order breakfast and lunch. Parents will need the child's ID# before they can start the registration process.

For breakfast meals in all of our schools, you can order online on the same day before 6:30 AM, while for lunch meals, you can order online on the same day before 7:30 AM. You can order meals for the day, or set up a weekly or monthly plan for meals to be provided to your children. The menus for all meals for a new month will be posted on the school’s website and on the Nutrislice app the last Monday at the end of the previous month.

For our primary schools, we will prepare your student’s food and deliver it to the classroom with the order ticket and your child’s name attached to the bag. For Wentworth students, the meals will be prepared into a container with the child’s name on it and placed on a table in the cafeteria for students to pick up. For students in the Middle school, meals will be prepared and labeled with the contents of the containers for students to pick up at the cafeteria. High school students will not be utilizing a pre-order system, students can select their desired meals at the time of their meal period, with a la carte options available for purchase at an extra cost.

Please call or email Brenda Franklin at 207-730-4700 or bfranklin@scarboroughschools.org for any help or questions or if you need the child's ID#.
