The Thompson School District Nutrition Services department is dedicated to providing delicious meals that support student growth and achievement.

Great care is taken by highly qualified staff to ensure Thompson School District’s breakfast and lunch menus meet or exceed United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) quality and nutrition standards.

We source clean label, fresh and local items to include in our recipes and menus. Our department adheres to strict food safety standards and practices to keep customers safe and healthy.

With the passage of Healthy School Meals for All in Colorado, we are excited to be able to offer breakfast and lunch at no cost to students, regardless of income or meal benefit status.
