The Ellington Public Schools are proud to collaborate with Whitsons School Nutrition to offer a healthy, nutritious, and convenient meal program for everyone. Our goal is to plan, prepare and serve nutritious meals, so our children are motivated to make healthy food choices at school. The traditional food-based menu planning system requires specific food group components to be served in specific amounts for each age/grade level.

Please click the Ellington Food Service Program link for all menus, contact information, pricing and nutritional information including allergens. For your convenience, we have also attached a simplified menu in a Word Document below that will be updated weekly.
