Nutrition at St. Luke's School

St. Luke's School has partnered with Cater to You Food Service as the dining services provider to create daily meals that focus on optimal nutritional impact for the community. Meals are centered on  a wide variety of protein sources both animal and plant based, whole grains, legumes, dairy foods, healthy fats, and the freshest of fruits and vegetables.

Menus are developed monthly to reflect seasonal availability, holidays and the special needs of the St. Luke's School community. The culinary team is led by our Chef Manager and Sous Chef.

Cater to You takes careful measures not to prepare or serve meals that contain peanuts or tree nuts. Extensive allergy awareness training through third-party certifiers AllerTrain and ServSafe has been completed by all Chef Managers and Sous Chefs. In addition, all other CtY team members serving the St. Luke’s School community receive annual allergy awareness instruction as part of CtY’s Back-to-School training programming.
