At St. Mark's, we believe strongly in providing wholesome nutritious meals and offering nutrition education programs for the our community.
Lunch is available each full day that school is in session. Regional and theme menus featuring homemade entrées and choices of side dishes will be served with each day presenting foods that follow the guidelines of a balanced program established for our students.
The serving area will also provide a Fresh Specialty Bar which could include a salad bar, deli station, dessert and fruit station, and a beverage station.

We have several students with special dietary needs, including food allergies or sensitivities, who enjoy lunch at St. Mark's every day. We work with the child and family to prepare plates that meet their dietary needs. Additionally, Flik employs a regional dietitian who works with Chef Sergio to ensure plates are healthy for all children and appropriate for those with specific needs. Every day, we serve vegetarian, dairy, and gluten free options on the menu.
As part of our desire to educate the whole child, we’d like to introduce our students to other tastes and help them make wise choices. If you are concerned about the offerings, feel free to pack your child some of their favorites, or speak with Chef Sergio to see if some of the items can be added to the menu.
If you feel that having your child eat on the dining plan is detrimental to his/her health, please have your child’s pediatrician send a letter to Eve Grubb outlining his/her special needs. If we don’t feel confident that we can meet those needs, we will opt out of dining services for your child.
