Food and Nutrition
The Murphy School District Food and Nutrition Department is committed to making sure students receive well -balanced meals. The National School Lunch and Breakfast program is a federally assisted meal program administered at the state level by Arizona Department of Education. School meals must meet meal pattern and nutrition standards. Our district has increased the availability of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat free or low fat milk in our meals. The levels of sodium will continue to decrease as we move forward into the new school year. Murphy School District meals are provided free of charge to all enrolled students. Our goal is to connect school meals with student learning in the classroom so that our youth may be inspired to form healthy habits for life.
Breakfast in the classroom is offered at all three district schools.
Special dietary needs can be accommodated please contact your school nurse on how to complete a special diet request form. Other non-medical diet request can be discussed with your school cafeteria manager. Please see contacts list.
Murphy School District is now partnered with Chartwells K-12 dining to provide the best meals to our students. For nutritional information and monthly menu please Click Here!
