MNW Kitchens
Manson NW Webster School Nutrition Program

We strive to support learning by providing healthy meals. MNW Schools currently has 2 schools, serving breakfast and lunch on a daily basis. All meals provided by MNW Schools must meet the Recommended Daily Allowance established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

MNW School Nutrition is an active participant in the National School Lunch and National School Breakfast Programs. These are federally assisted child feeding programs sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provide free or reduced meals to our students whose families meet the criteria.

MNW School Nutrition Department considers food safety a huge priority. Our employees are trained to make sure all HACCP procedures are followed. The Calhoun County Health Department also conducts inspections each year at each school. Along with the health inspections, we also conduct health and safety inspections of our own throughout the year.

As a partner in education, the MNW School Nutrition Program contributes to a successful academic experience and encourages a lifetime of healthy eating by providing each student with the affordable opportunity to enjoy meals that are nutritious, appealing, and served by caring professionals in a pleasant environment.

We look forward to serving your children and invite you to visit your child’s cafeteria during the school year.
