Food Services

Welcome to the Oxford Public Schools Food Service Page. We view the school cafeteria as a nutrition education experience, where we teach by example and through the delicious and healthy food choices we offer.
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has extended FREE school meals for all students through the 2023-2024 school year! This means that breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at no cost to ALL students.

Our Food Service Director and our cafeteria staff are dedicated to providing appetizing, satisfying, and nutritionally sound breakfast and lunch meals in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere. Menus are planned following USDA guidelines while keeping health and taste as top priorities. Nutrient information is available for all foods served and be obtained by contacting the Food Service Department. 

All of our Food Service staff are allergy, CPR, and ServSafe trained and certified, and take pride in serving carefully prepared food in their clean kitchens. 


This is a federal and state-regulated program.  No local tax money is used for this program.  All funds are derived from the federal and state governments as well as money collected from students and staff from food payments.  Federal regulations control menu planning.  Fat is not to exceed 30% of calories and less than 10% of calories from saturated fat on a weekly basis. We also follow calorie and sodium restrictions. These targets and others are set to meet recommended dietary allowance (RDA) guidelines. Regulations can only help us offer good choices.
