Mission Statement:
The School City of Hammond Department of Food and Nutrition provides excellent quality meals, prepared and served in a safe, sanity, and pleasant environment, while reinforcing healthy eating patterns for students, staff, and their families.  

About Us:

  • Our menus are nutritionally analyzed with a software program called Titan to ensure nutritional integrity as well as full compliance with USDA regulations.

  • We are "self-funded" as we generate our own income from USDA meal reimbursement, and pay our own operational expenses, with no reliance on local taxpayers or the school district's general fund.

  • Our school kitchens are inspected twice each year by the Lake County Health Department.  We proudly say that a perfect score is our norm.
