To bring our dining service in line with the culture and core values of AFS, last year we began an exciting partnership with CulinArt Dining Services to create a community lunch that is simple, healthy and kid-friendly. Families buy blocks of meals at reasonable cost, allowing us to do away with cash registers and the lines that go with them.
As part of our commitment to sustainability, students have opportunities to participate in growing a variety of vegetables and herbs in a garden on campus, to learn about composting and to join in our recycling efforts. CulinArt also works with food suppliers, local farmers and community based organizations to increase the availability of locally sourced food. To reduce our waste, we no longer offer bottled water. Instead, students help themselves from vessels filled with fresh iced tea, water and juices.
Students on the meal plan have a wide choice of healthy foods to choose from every day, including:
Hearty home style soup selections
such as chicken and rice, Italian wedding, tortilla and beef and barley, as well as chilis and chowders.
A hot entrée accompanied by a starch and vegetable selections.
Popular comfort foods incorporating local products, such as old fashioned meatloaf served with country carrots and smashed potatoes or roasted pork loan with zucchini squash and risotto.
such as Caesar salad, Mediterranean vegetable salad, soba noodle and vegetable salad and crunchy carrot, raisin and scallion salad.
A signature salad bar
with an abundance of fresh vegetables, fruits and greens as well as antipasto style items such as fresh marinated mozzarella, roasted eggplant, diced chicken and more.
Fresh oven baked gourmet and traditional pizza
as well as a variety of Stromboli, calzones, garlic knots and fresh pasta selections.
Two pastas daily,
one of which is whole grain and two sauces daily, one of which is marinara.
A self serve deli bar

Fresh and healthy menu items
