Fresh Cooked Meals Every Day!
PPS Kitchen Gardens
Providence Preparatory School is committed to healthy choices for your child.
Lifetime eating habits are formed during a child’s earliest years. Along with our families, we greatly influence each child’s nutritional preferences by providing many of the children’s daily meals.
Our chefs prepare breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack using a combination of fresh, locally grown whole foods (subject to seasonal availability), fruits, vegetables and herbs. PPS partners with MicroFarm Organic Gardens to plant our15 raised bed planters with lettuces, vegetables and herbs. The produce is used in the kitchen by the chefs with surplus donated to Friendship Trays.
Our chefs use ingredients that are healthy, rich in nutrients, low in fat and sodium and high in protein. The children are served organic milk (subject to market place availability), whole wheat breads, fruit served fresh (subject to seasonal availability), lean meats and low sugar snacks.
FAMILY MEALS TO GO
As a part of our Family Engagement initiative, we offer a delicious, nutritious “Meal To Go” to our families, quarterly. We showcase the Chef’s talents and the children’s favorite foods. This provides a simple way for the family to sit together and enjoy one of PPS’ favorite meals.
Our meals and snacks meet the requirements for Meal Patterns as defined by the USDA.
** Children with allergies and special dietary restrictions will be given substitute foods with equivalent nutritional content.
