wholesome NUTRITION from our garden
The Learning Lodge serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon snacks, selecting our options by following the guidelines of the USDA Child and Adult Food Program. But these aren't just any meals. Nothing is processed or from a box; all of our meals are made from scratch with locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We have chickens and a garden on site, and our wholesome meals don't just look great and taste better - they help teach good, healthy habits from a young age.
All meals are prepared by the staff at The Learning Lodge. The center will accommodate any special dietary needs of the children enrolled. Please advise us if your child has food allergies.
