Falls Church City Public Schools Food Services department is a nationally award-winning program; recognized with the prestigious Magna Award by the National School Board Association as an exemplary program in the United States.
FCCPS believes that healthy meals are essential to student learning, and the School Board has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to making sure every child in FCCPS has nutritional food.
Food Services Director Richard Kane takes great pride in making sure that 90% of the menu is made from fresh food, and 90% is also prepared from scratch every day.
The Food Services program ensures students know what is served on a particular day. All nutritional information and pictures of the food are posted on the lunch menu website. This aids students with dietary restrictions due to food allergies and sensitivities, as well as those who follow religious dietary restrictions.
The Food Services program provides weekend box meals for families in need. In addition, FCCPS serves lunch to all students in the summer who attend the Summer Program and also for any student who would benefit by accessing the meals program in the summer at no cost.
