My name is Jackie Hess, and I am the Director of Food Services. I have a Certified Dietary Manager certificate, and am an active member of the School Nutrition Association. I have lived in Bellevue since 1993, and I can honestly say this is my home. I have chosen this town to raise my family in. My husband Greg and I have four children in the district.
The Food Service Department serves an average of 1,700 meals daily. The meals served are prepared by a caring and knowledgeable staff that follows state guidelines to ensure that your child receives a safe and nutritious meal. The Bellevue City School District participates in the National School Lunch Program. This program sets guidelines from the USDA for the school lunch and breakfast meal pattern. Each meal has the required amount of nutrition mandated by this program.
Some of our best kept secrets are
1. We don’t deep fry anything!
2. We use whole grain bread and buns.
3. Some of our breakfast bars have a hidden serving of fruit in them.
4. School pizza has reduced fat cheese, turkey pepperoni, and/or whole grain crust.
Our goal is to feed the body, so that the mind is ready to be fed in the classroom.
