Recipes & Menus

Recipes and menus are the heart of school food change. These recipes have been developed by school food professionals, kid-tested, and perfected in school kitchens. Farm to School Recipes (recipe numbers that begin with FS) were created with support from a USDA Farm to School Grant.

The recipe search is powered by Horizon Software International’s K-12 software, which provides The Lunch Box with a recipe interface that is easily recognizable to the K-12 user and ensures compliance with USDA regulations. Head over to the Recipes section to start exploring!
