At the High School, as part of our philosophy of preparation for college and life, there is not an official food service. Students either sign out and visit nearby downtown eateries (like Safier Mediterranean Deli, Sicilian Pizza & Pasta, Yafa Cafe, Subway, McDonalds, Qdoba and Wok Express), or bring a lunch. There is a kitchen dedicated to student use, with refrigerator, freezer, microwaves, and oven.
At the Goshen Campus, we are committed to providing fresh, healthy, local food to its students and staff every day. Today’s children need not only to consume what is good for them but also to understand the role of food in our lives, where it comes from, and the importance of its quality. Beginning in 2005 the school began a partnership with Sage Food Services of Lutherville, MD, a leader countrywide in the sourcing and preparation of healthy food for school children. A glance at the Sage website speaks volumes. This strategic partnership has enabled St. Francis to connect with local suppliers of largely organic produce, as well as hormone and antibiotic-free milk and red meat. Chef Matt Thomas delivers the goods on a daily basis: multiple vegetable choices, a vegetarian option, salad bar and sandwich bar, all prepared with an expert’s touch. In addition, our Garden Coordinator grows fresh produce on campus in raised beds, in our greenhouse, in bourbon barrels and in our larger Middle School Garden. Chef Matt frequently uses produce from all of these gardens! Click here to view Goshen Menu. To help students celebrate their birthdays at school our Chef has created a nut-free Cookie Cake.
