About Our Food Services Program

Amherst Pelham Regional School Nutrition Services is a self-operated child nutrition program that offers nutritious and appealing meals throughout the school year and summer. The program services 7 public schools with a total enrollment of approximately 3,000 students. We participate in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). All our meals operate under the strict Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.

We strive to serve the healthiest meals possible, sourcing as much local food as we can while working within a budget that makes school food affordable for all. The result is a comprehensive and creative menu that focuses on health, wellness, and sustainability. Students leave our cafeterias each day having eaten a nutritious meal, thus they are much better set up to learn and be successful in the classroom.

Amherst Pelham Regional schools will continue to adhere to the Healthy Hunger Free Kids act of 2010





Our Students' Plate

We pledge to always listen to the feedback of students and families because we're here to serve YOU. Based on your survey results from the 2016-17 academic year, there were some standout qualities that matter most to you for the new direction of ARPS Food Service. We read you loud and clear. The following mission statement and four pillars of excellence below constitute our new "Students' Plate" model. Starting September 2017, we pledge to adhere to the values of the Students' Plate and do our part to bring ARPS Food Service up to the standards you expect and deserve.
