Nourishing meals – because the student body is at the center of education

Kennewick School District and our service partners Sodexo understand that the most effective education environments are those that nourish the body alongside the mind, recognizing that one cannot grow without the other. Academic success relies on meals that are fresh, nutritious, tasty and customized to the diverse needs and desires of the student body. Our goal is to provide meal options that keep students healthy, focused and energetic.
