St Cloud Area School District 742 has expanded the number of meal choices at all schools within the past year. All elementary schools offer at least two options daily; middle schools serve at least three options daily, and high schools receive at least four options daily (except at McKinley Alternative Learning Center which has a single catered lunch).
All breakfast and lunch meals served in the district exceed the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act regulations and meet the standards set by The Alliance for a Healthier Generation. In addition to multiple entree options, the district provides six - eight varieties of fruits and vegetables daily. Three varieties of milk are also offered daily including 1%, skim and chocolate- skim as well as Lactaid or soymilk for students with allergies.
Tech High School began working with a student food advisory committee during the fall 2018-2019 school year to receive student input and upgrade the quality of several of our food items including chicken and beef products. This year, Apollo High School will also have a student food advisory committee.
