• Welcome! Manchester Essex Regional School District



    Food is a big part of everyone’s well-being, and Manchester Essex Regional School District students need a place to eat where they can connect with others, recharge, and enjoy a sense of happiness in their school. That’s why we serve food kids love to eat and create programs that encourage fun and discovery.

    Our food service team is passionate about using fresh, nutritious, minimally processed and locally sourced ingredients, and we foster a sense of adventure in students through experiential learning activities – all with healthier students, healthier communities, and a healthier planet in mind.

    Our goal every day is to make sure that Manchester Essex Regional School District students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than when they came in!
