From the Director, A Message from Candice Hagar, MA, RD, CD

The nutrition services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn.

Nutrition Services actively contributes to the wellbeing of all students enrolled at Fort Wayne Community Schools by providing quality nutritious meals and research-based nutrition education to positively influence the students' cognitive development, self-esteem, and social and physical growth.

It is our goal to provide nutrition education support not only for students, but also for the staff of Fort Wayne Community Schools, parents, and the broader community.

Nutrition Services' four Registered Dietitians also work diligently to plan and provide nutrition support and education for a wide variety of diet restrictions including but not limited to diabetes, allergies of all kinds, and texture modifications.

I am excited and passionate about making a difference in the health and education of the next generation as well as the current generation. It is truly my pleasure to serve the constituency of Fort Wayne Community Schools.
