The Bettendorf Community Schools offer well-balanced and nutritious meals to the students each day.

Support Lunch Accounts for Students in Need
You can donate funds to help students with negative lunch accounts. The funds go into a Negative Lunch Balance Account to allow money to be added to the accounts of students in need. Contact Kayla Leu at (563) 359-3681 or kleu@bettendorf.k12.ia.us

It is well known that students perform better and feel better if good nutrition and consistent eating patterns are a routine part of their day. School nutrition services plays an important role in the educational curriculum as it sets a good example for healthy eating habits and introduces new foods. School breakfast and lunch provides 1/3 of a student's daily nutritional requirements with each meal. It allows for broad food preferences and cultural, ethnic and religious food practices.

Peanuts & Tree Nuts

Elementary Schools

In an effort to meet the needs of all of the elementary students at Bettendorf Community School District, we will not be serving any products with peanuts or tree nuts as an ingredient. Students who are severely allergic to peanuts or tree nuts should have a letter on file from their physician. Although we do not serve items with peanuts or tree nuts as an ingredient in our elementary schools, we cannot guarantee that the products we serve were manufactured in a nut free facility, as the FALCPA does not require companies to list this on labels. Bettendorf Community School District is nut aware, but we are not a nut free school district.

Middle & High Schools

The high school and the middle school will not serve any products with peanuts or tree nuts as an ingredient on the main serving line; however alternate lines (Chick-Fil-A, pizza, PB&J, etc.) and a la carte lines in both the high school and middle school, as well as the Bulldog Grab ‘N Go, will offer products with peanuts as an ingredient and products with peanut and tree nut traces. Please make sure that your student is aware of this when purchasing items from the alternate serving line, the a la carte line, or from the Bulldog Grab 'N Go.
