Due to updated health and safety guidelines, the Food Program will be suspended for the 2020-2021 school year.
At GBS, we strive to foster an environment that nurtures children’s senses: What are they feeling with their hands? What are they seeing, smelling, and tasting? Our food program relates children to a sense of community, well-being and gratitude, as well as dedication to stewardship of the earth.
An organic, wholesome and sustainable snack and lunch are prepared fresh and provided for students every day, except for some outdoor days. This happens in our campus kitchen and our outdoor farm kitchen. Children, teachers, parents and a school chef all take some part in growing and preparing school meals every day. We do this because we believe:
The children all bring a fruit and a vegetable to school, from home, once a week. These contributions are incorporated into our meals, typically into our class-made vegetable soups or snacks. Our menu offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options without making children feel excluded or different. If a child has more specific dietary restrictions, we do our best to meet those needs.
