food and nutrition

The Murphy School District food service 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.
