Nourishing students is not only our business; it's our personal commitment to the community in which we serve.
 
 
 
 
Food & Nutrition

 
In addition to academics, there are many other important areas that contribute to the experience of The City of Baker Public Schools, such as serving students nutritious meals! We believe that we have the responsibility to nourish our students' bodies and to provide a clean and safe learning environment.

Children need healthy meals to learn. The City of Baker School Board offers a choice of healthy meals every school day. Students may buy subsidized lunch and breakfast every school day. Students who meet the U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines may get meals free or at a reduced price lunch and breakfast. All meals served must meet nutrition standards established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
