New Roots Charter School offers FREE Farm to School breakfast and lunch featuring healthy comfort food for teens to ALL enrolled students! 

For students wishing to purchase additional food deposits can be made by cash or check in the breakfast or lunch line. Caregivers can also mail in payments.

Understanding the connection between the Earth, its bounty, and our bodies is an important part of the New Roots experience. Our Farm to School meal team strives to serve a variety of delicious foods daily.We try to purchase as much produce as possible from the Youth Farm.

Attention Caregivers: New Roots Charter School offers free meals to all students. All students enrolled at New Roots are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household.


School lunches have never been so fresh and delicious!

New Roots School is part of a growing Farm to School movement across the country connecting school lunch programs with local farms.  Not only do these relationships bring healthy food into the cafeteria, they also help youth see the impact that food systems have on communities.
