The Tri-Valley Middle School Food Service Department consists of 1 Head Cook and 6 Assistant Cooks. The Department provides wholesome appetizing food choices for the students and employees in the district at a reasonable cost. These choices contribute to the good nutrition that's so vital to both mental and physical growth of students. The Department operates just like a business. All costs, including salaries, benefits, food purchases, utilities, etc. associated with the Food Service Department are paid for by the money collected from students, staff, and federal reimbursement from the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program.
