**Applications are now being accepted for the 2023-24 school year!!**

Nutrition Services employs 21 staff members who work as a team to feed the students of the Molalla River School District. Our program is run under the National School Lunch Program, and all meals meet the daily requirements for nutritional standards required by the USDA. We feel that children who are well fed are more likely to succeed. Over the school year 2022-23, we fed 42,458 Breakfasts and 142,486 Lunches to our students! We are excited to see your students this year and provide them with a healthy and delicious meal.
