Cafe 233 is the Food Services division of the Olathe School District. We believe our students deserve the very best! We continually strive to provide reasonably priced, nutritious meals that students enjoy so they will be powered to learn when they enter the classroom.

The Food Production Center houses a centralized warehouse, production, distribution and administrative offices for Food Services. Nearly 300 Food Service Professionals serve the district’s 29,000+ students in our 51 cafes across the district. We serve meals under the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program, which includes a Free and Reduced Priced Program for low income families. We also provide Grab N’ Go Breakfast, Kindergarten Milk and a full service Catering Program.

We encourage parents to visit any of our cafes to see why school lunch is a great value!

Wonder how we feed 29,000 kids every day?  How is Cafe 233 responding to new nutrition regulations?  What do our students say about us?  To find out, check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHUqy4rldbQ

Smart Snacks in School: USDA’s “All Foods Sold in Schools” Standards

As a part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2010 passed by the U.S. Congress, nutrition standards for all foods sold in schools were established to promote a healthy school environment. These requirements go into effect July 1, 2014.   An increasing body of research tells us that giving school children healthy food options at school will help them make healthier choices and can reduce their risk for obesity. The law specifies that the nutrition standards shall apply to all food sold outside the school meal programs, on the school campus, and at any time from the midnight before to 30 minutes after the end of the official school day.   (Changes to school meals resulting from HHFKA were implemented for the 12-13 school year; school meals now provide more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and they also meet strict nutrition standards.) The Smart Snacks standards apply to a la carte in the cafeteria, school stores, snack bars, vending machines, fundraising, and other venues where food is sold to students during the school day.
