The Harwood Unified Union Food and Nutrition Department's mission is to provide students with the knowledge and skills to make healthy food choices.
We encourage students' and community members' involvement to help create and foster this environment.
Allowing and encouraging your children to eat school breakfast and school lunch not only helps assure their health and academic abilities, but also supports the Food and Nutrition Services Department and enhance our entire community.
The culinary staff look forward to continuing to provide healthy, nutritious food in an educational environment

All our schools participate in the USDA National School Breakfast Program and in the USDA National School Lunch Program. All nutrition standards are followed according to federal regulations established by these programs. The integrity of these programs is regulated by the Vermont Agency of Education, Child Nutrition Programs.
Our schools also follow food safety practices established by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We have at least one staff member in each school certified as a ServSafe Manager by the National Restaurant Association, which is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) under the Conference for Food Protection Standards. The Vermont Department of Health is the regulatory agency of our programs.
Thank you for your support.
