Francis Parker School places the highest priority on serving balanced, nutritious food in both our Mission Hills and Linda Vista Campus cafeterias, and also in helping to educate our students about the importance of maintaining a healthy diet.
Lunches consist of hot entrees, fresh salad, fruit, and soup bars, and a wide variety of side dishes. Lunch is included in the cost of tuition and is served fresh every school day.
The Parker Café also has a special events menu for any on-campus events.

A Healthy Menu
In 2007-2008, Francis Parker School engaged a registered dietician to study, analyze, and make dietary recommendation on our lunch and snack services. Today, Parker Food Services offers a balanced diet that meets or exceeds all of the recommended daily allowances for our target age groups.
We have cut down on fat, packaged foods, foods with preservatives, and most desserts. We have increased our use of homemade soups with fresh materials, baking instead of frying, and serve more nutritious breads, pastas, and sauces. Nutritious snacks are also provided in many Lower School classrooms.
