YPS Cafeteria

Good nutrition and academic success go hand in hand!

Our cafeteria team supports our student’s academic success by providing healthy meal choices while promoting lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Nutritional Excellence

Young Public School participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritionally balanced, low cost or free meals to qualifying students. The food and beverages we sell or serve meet state and federal requirements based on USDA Dietary Guidelines. We encourage our families to apply for meal benefits by completing a Free and Reduced Meal Application.


Did you know that breakfast increases your child’s brain power? Our bodies convert breakfast food into energy for use by our brain. When children skip breakfast, they must rely on the energy from their last meal to fuel their brain. Without breakfast, kids typically have a gap of twelve hours or more between dinner and lunch. This can make kids tired and restless.

Our school breakfast ensures your child starts the school day well-nourished and ready to learn. For less than $2 per day, your child receives all the ingredients—whole grains, fruit, and protein—needed to fuel their brain for optimal learning.
