About Spectrum Resource Center and School Nutrition
Spectrum Resource Center and School’s Nutrition Department’s primary concern is the well-being and health of our students.  Good nutrition is critical for maximum student achievement and assists with meeting our educational goals.  We serve nutritious meals to our students that are of excellent food quality, taste and freshness.  All meals meet the USDA requirements for nutritionally balanced meals at the proper portion size.  Along with healthy meals, Spectrum Resource Center and School provides nutrition education that will help to prepare our students to make healthy choices and lead healthy lifestyles now and into the future.

Our Mission
Spectrum Resource Center and School Nutrition team is dedicated to the achievement of our students and the future wellness of students.  Therefore, we provide healthy meals and nutrition education in a welcoming dining environment.  This dedication stems from our commitment to be responsible stewards to support the unique educational goals of Spectrum Resource Center and School while providing the highest quality for our students.

Our Vision
By 2020, our students will be noticeably healthier!  All students will benefit from access to a variety of healthy food within their school lunch, including: fruits, vegetables and milk.  Additionally, a progressive nutrition and wellness program will be implemented, in conjunction with the construction of our new gymnasium, we will assist our students to “resolve to be fit”.  This program is designed to assist children with Autism to make healthy life choices.  *According to the CDC, by adolescence, children with Autism were reported to be 32% more obese than adolescents without Autism.  Spectrum Resource Center and School would like to help make a dent in this percentage and build healthy life skills.
