Manson Northwest Webster Kitchen

Meals for this year we will continue to cook good tasty meals as always, but they will be prepackaged by our kitchen staff. It will not be an offer vs. serve meal. Your children will get everything that is on the menu. However, they do not need to eat everything they are given, but are encouraged to try them. 

We are trying to do our part to avoid spread of Covid -19. Kitchen staff will be wearing face masks and/or face shields. We will also have plexi-glass barriers in place at all sites. 

Welcome back and we hope you have a great year.

Diet Modification

If your child has a food allergy or special dietary need and requires a modification of his/her school lunch, this form must be completed and returned to the School Nurse.

For students that are unable to drink milk, the nutritionally-equivalent product we serve is Kikkoman Pearl Organic Creamy Vanilla or Chocolate Soy milk at the Elementary School. If you have a child at the High School that wants soy milk, let us know and we will get it in. Water is also available in our lunchrooms. Dairy-free beverages are available for individual purchases as à la carte selections for our High School students as well.

Manson NW Webster School Nutrition Program

We strive to support learning by providing healthy meals. MNW School District currently has 3 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 Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals  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.
