    Menu Advisory Committee (MAC)

    The Menu Advisory Committee (MAC) includes parents, students and staff who review the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) to provide greater knowledge of USDA guidelines and regulations for daily meal service. The MAC provides feedback for future menus and helps plan the menus for the next school year.

    The MAC meets about four times per year. During meetings, the committee will sample & critique recipes under consideration for use in the school year, and discuss the implementation of new programs.

    Meetings will be held at the Padgett Auxiliary Services Center.
