Alliance for Progress Charter School provides a breakfast and lunch program through Nutritional Development Services (NDS) of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. It has been the mission of NDS to provide healthy school meals to the children of the Philadelphia area for over 40 years. Many changes have been made to the National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs over that time. School meals have evolved and improved in many ways to give your child the nutrients they need to develop and learn.
For example - over the last two years, many wonderful and colorful fruits and vegetables have been added to the lunch menu. In support of your efforts at home to expand your child's palate, students are offered nutrient dense fresh produce, 100% fruit and vegetable juices, and more variety than ever. Many of these are locally grown.
This year, there are two exciting changes occurring through the NDS program.
In addition, all schools will see the following changes that improve the nutritional quality of meals and are in line with recommendations from the National Institutes of Health:
