Dining Program

Benchmark School offers a comprehensive lunch program in our newly transformed dining hall.

What food is served?

Featuring from-scratch cooking designed to appeal to students, our offerings are sourced from local vendors, farms, and CSAs. We are committed to serving appealing and nutritious meals that kids love. Each day's offerings include hot and cold items, vegetarian options, and salads.

Lunch program fun facts:

  • Our in-house chef prepares our lunches daily, making most items from scratch.
  • In the spirit of community, students eat together. After eating, they clear their own places, wipe down the tables, and tidy the area.
  • We recycle plastics and encourage the use of reusable cutlery, water bottles, and napkins.

How much does it cost?

The cost of lunch is included in tuition; there is no additional charge.

Happy Children, Happy Parents

"I can’t tell you how wonderful this new lunch program has been for Jax! He actually eats lunch now, which in turn helps him to participate and have the energy for class. He’s excited to tell me what he has tried everyday. And that is the other fantastic thinghe’s actually trying new food that he never would for us at home. This experience is broadening his food acceptance. This has been life-changing for us. The lunch program has been a wonderful addition to the overall experience at Benchmark."
