We have a foundational belief that drives our work every day:

All students deserve to enjoy delicious, healthy food in a warm and friendly environment. This is our calling.

Food Service News

New! FD Meal Planner

We will be transitioning to a new portal for parents to access online menus, FD Meal Planner. Starting April 1 this system will take the place of our current web-based menu for your food service program. FD Meal Planner has much of the same functionality as our current online menus, but with more accurate nutritional information and more robust content. See complete details on this flyer.

Meatless Mondays

Fresh Picks is implementing a new initiative that will expand our available meal options for students.  This initiative will provide meatless meal options on Mondays by adding some tasty, creative meal options to our current menu.  Dishes with meat would still be offered on Mondays; we are just providing new meatless options. See complete details on this flyer.

Free & Reduced meals

Income guidelines have increased for the 2024-25 school year. We encourage all families to apply for Free and Reduced Meals, even if you were ineligible for Free or Reduced meals in prior years. Even if you have been eligible for Free or Reduced meals in the past, all families are required to reapply for 2024-25.

Mail completed applications to Newmarket School District, Attn: Justin Loring, 186A Main Street, Newmarket, NH 03857
