Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls

Dining Services

Fresh Ideas

Hawthorn is partnering with Fresh Ideas to provide a healthy dining program for our students. We know how important it is for students to fuel their bodies and their minds.

Hawthorn girls will have the option to eat breakfast at school between 7:40 and 8:00. Depending on the students' lunch schedules, lunch is typically served some time between 11:30 and 1:00 on any given day. A snack will be provided in the afternoon. Monthly menus will be posted on the website for students and families to review.

We inspire students to be educated eaters. We believe in providing high quality, nutritious, fresh foods combined with education about the importance of living a healthy and balanced life.

Fresh Ideas' dietitians are available to answer questions, provide food plans and work with students on food allergies. They can be contacted at askthedietitian@freshideasfood.com.

Meal Pricing & Menu

Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls is participating in a Free Breakfast and Lunch Program for the current school year 2019-2020. This alternative is referred to as the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). All students enrolled at this school may participate in the breakfast and lunch program at no charge. Household applications for free and reduced price meals will not be collected.

Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing school meals to all children at no charge, we are hoping to create a better learning environment for our students.

The school breakfast and lunch that we serve follows U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The Free Breakfast and Lunch Program cannot succeed without your support. Please encourage your children to participate in the school meal program.  Here are examples of our menus:

If your children attend Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls, breakfast and lunch will be available to them at no charge.
