Corner Cafe

Corner Cafe

 Welcome to the NDA Cafe! We look forward to serving you.

 The Federal Government has set new healthy guidelines for school lunches. We call it “Putting more on your plate.” Students will receive at least half a cup of fruits or vegetables or a combination of both. A few other healthy changes are half of the grains each week will be whole grain, offering fat-free flavored or unflavored milk, no foods with trans fats, and no fried foods. Our Cafe team works hard every day to provide a variety of baked or steamed foods each that all the students enjoy.

 Cost of School Lunch – $3.05

School lunch cost includes lunch and milk. Our Cafe offers various extras sold daily (listed on each month’s menu). Each student will have an account that allows you to pay for meals and a-la-carte items in advance. We currently use a program called My School Bucks which gives families control over loading money, checking balances, and setting alerts. Go to to set up an account.

Free and/or Reduced Lunch

Free and/or reduced lunch applications are made available through the Cafe. Please read the form carefully, as you may qualify. The application is confidential, as would be the student’s lunch account. If your situation changes anytime during the school year, please do not hesitate to apply or contact the Cafe for more information.
