Food Services

Did you know that what your child eats today will have a striking impact on their health throughout adolescence and adulthood? Consuming nutritious foods helps children and teens grow, develop, do well academically and feel good about themselves. The Gateway Food Services Department is proud to be a part of your child's healthy nutrition development.
