The goal of Mankato Area School District's Food Services Department is to provide students with healthy food that tastes good. The menu is planned according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's nutrition standards.
The USDA’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act requires schools to:

 Offer fruit and vegetables daily
 Offer only whole grain-rich items
 Include the 5 vegetable subgroups weekly
 Offer only fat-free or low-fat dairy items
 On average, the planned lunch contains 
<10% saturated fat and 0 grams trans fat, 600-650 calories for grades K-8, and 750-850 calories for grades 9-12.
