At Fremont County School District #2 we recognize the connection between good nutrition and student success. All of our food service staff is dedicated to our students' health, well being, and their ability to learn.
All meals, foods, and beverages sold or served at schools are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines and meet state and federal requirements. All students have access to well balanced, healthy meals that provide the recommended amounts of nutrients and energy for optimal learning and child development.
Rams Food Pak Program
Fremont County School District #2 is teaming up with the Community Food Bank of St. Thomas’ Church to offer supplemental food for children over their weekends and extended breaks, free of charge. We will place food items in a bag that will fit in a student’s backpack and distribute at school on the last school day before the weekend or break. All students enrolled in FCSD#2 are eligible to receive a Ram Food Pak.
If you believe your child could benefit from this program, we encourage you to sign them up by completing the form below and returning it to the K-12 school office as soon as possible. Only one form is needed for each family, but please include information for each child. This information is confidential and the distribution of food will be discreet. Once you sign your child up, he/she will receive a bag of supplemental food each week. This will continue until your child is no longer enrolled in school or when you notify the school office in writing that you no longer wish to participate.
We encourage you to take advantage of this program for your family and your children. If you have questions regarding this program, please contact Jamie Houck, FCSD#2 Food Service Director, at 455.5511.
USDA Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program
Dubois K-5 School has been awarded a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) USDA Grant for the 2016-2017 school year! Your child’s school is among 151 Wyoming elementary schools selected to participate. Beginning in October, our food service staff will be preparing delicious trays of fresh fruits or vegetables for all our K-5 students. We will be serving the FFVP snack on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
The goal of the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program is to:
- Create healthier school environments by providing healthier food opportunities and education
- Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience
- Increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption
- Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health
Your child will eat the fresh fruits and vegetables snack in his/her classroom. Along with tasting the fresh fruit or vegetable of the day, your child will be learning fun and educational facts about that day’s fresh fruit or vegetable. Children will be encouraged to try the fruit or vegetable snack of the day, but they may choose to not participate if they do not like or cannot eat the fruit or vegetable offered. Please encourage your child to participate in the snack, as this will show your support of healthy food choices and willingness for your child to try new foods.
