School Food Project – With renowned Chef Ann Cooper at the helm of the BVSD food services program, BVSD is at the forefront of a national effort dedicated to providing healthy food and nutritional programs for students. This amounts to serving nearly 14,000 scratch-cooked meals each day in BVSD schools, using locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible, and avoiding highly processed foods, high fructose corn syrup, chemicals, dyes and food additives. Salad Bars are offered daily at every school and are stocked with fresh, delicious and when possible, local farm fresh produce.

Each year, BVSD’s graduates are awarded millions of dollars in scholarships and score well above the state and national averages on the ACT and SAT college entrance exams.
