School Lunch Program
The North Tonawanda City School District participates in the National School Meal Program under the guidance of the USDA. Student lunch is planned to meet one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for the dietary guidelines for the student's age group. Under these guidelines, we must meet standards for calories, percentage of fat, protein, calcium, iron and vitamins A and C.
Our menus provide increased quantities of vegetables/fruits and grains for our District students. Students are offered a variety of milk choices, including fat-free, low fat, and flavored on a daily basis. Students are also offered a variety of meats/poultry, fresh fruits, vegetables and grains on a daily basis through our breakfast and lunch programs.
Lunch is Served From:
NTHS -- 10:10 a.m. - 1:05 p.m.
NTMS -- 10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.
NTI -- 10:45 a.m. - 2:10 p.m.

In addition, we offer healthy choices in our vending machines, snack bars, and school stores as well. The health and wellness of our students is very important to us and we do what we can to provide healthful choices everyday.
Our goal is to encourage healthy lifelong eating habits by providing foods that are high in nutrients, low in fat and added sugars, and of moderate portion size.
