Fresh Foods Program

Granville Schools are pleased to be partnering with AVI Fresh to bring an innovative, new student lunch program to our schools. Our focus is growing healthy students. Our lunches feature the freshest ingredients, prepared daily in our schools. We use organic foods and products whenever possible and feasible. 

We believe in “local.” We buy produce and foods from local Licking and Knox County farmers to promote sustainability. More than 25 percent of our food comes from a radius less than 75 miles from our schools. Some produce even comes from our own school gardens!

We offer more choices for every student, every day. We provide a daily vegetarian option and are introducing gluten-free options, too. The “Fresh Market” at Granville High and Middle schools providing daily variety, includes choices from our Grill, Deli, Italia, Daily Featured Entrée, Build Your Own Wraps, and Salads & Sandwiches. A la carte choices include Smoothies, Specialty Salads, Pitas & Hummus, Fresh Fruit, Yogurt Parfaits and much more!

Our student-focused food service provides reusable serve ware, including trays and silverware, to reduce waste. In the first year, we were able to reduce our lunch waste by 80 bags a day!

Our meals are served in refreshed dining areas to create an inviting atmosphere. We’ve added food service lines for increased service and more dining time.

Because students are hungry before and after lunch,  the “Nutribar” at Granville High and Middle schools is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Nutribar offers breakfast foods, smoothies, coffees & teas, and select lunch items. We’re also now providing an after-school snack program to fuel students through their extracurricular activities until dinner.

Our fresh, healthy student lunch program continues to earn national recognition as schools across the country contact us to learn how to start their own program, modeled after Granville Schools.
