We strive to serve appealing, tasty, and nutritious meals in a pleasant atmosphere at an affordable cost.  The statement, "You cannot teach a hungry child," is our incentive to meet the nutritional needs for our students.  Students are encouraged to try new foods and use the cafeteria as a learning laboratory for making nutritious choices.  Balance, moderation, and variety are the keys to healthier eating.  If we can instill this into our children today, we will have healthier adults in the future.

Your Day Starts with a Good Breakfast

Many families have busy schedules that make it difficult for their children to sit down in the morning to eat a nutritious breakfast. A good breakfast is essential for good health and academic success. Eating school breakfast helps to alleviate that morning hunger as well as provide adequate nutrition for good health. Some of the ways that eating breakfast at school may improve a child’s academic performance include:

  • Children who eat breakfast make fewer mistakes and work faster in the classroom.
  • Children who eat breakfast at school – closer to class and test-taking time – perform better on standardized tests than those who skip breakfast or eat breakfast at home.
  • Providing breakfast to students at school improves their concentration, alertness, comprehension, memory, and learning.
  • Children who increase their school breakfast participation as a result of a school breakfast program show greater improvements in math scores, attendance, punctuality, depression, anxiety, and hyperactivity than children whose participation remains unchanged or decreases.


Breakfast is served in all schools in Collierville.
