Food Services

The Warwick Valley Central School District offers breakfast and lunch to all students. We serve more than 1,500 nutritionally balanced lunches to students each day.

School lunches provide one-third of the recommended dietary intake for calories, protein and vitamins A and C, iron and calcium. On average, a meal contains less than 30 percent of calories from fat and less than 10 percent from saturated fat. In recent year. the district has increased the use of whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables.
