Gateway Christian Education Center provides healthy and nutritious meals and snacks for our children. All of our meals and snacks meet USDA/CACFP standards for nutrition.

We serve breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack each day. Breakfast is served daily from 8 am until 9 am. Please make sure your child is at the center with plenty of time to eat breakfast.

Lunch is served from 11 am until noon, depending on the class schedule. If your child will arrive at the center after 10 am, please be sure to contact us earlier so that we may have an accurate lunch count.

Please check your child's room for monthly menus for all meals. 

If your child has special dietary requirements, allergies or sensitivities, please be sure to let us know during enrollment. We are required to have medical documentation for all dietary restrictions and allergies. For those children with dietary restrictions, those restrictions will be posted in the child's classroom. Gateway Christian Education Center is a Nut-Free Facility. 

Children CANNOT bring food into the center. Please allow time for your child to finish any meals or snacks before arriving at the center. 

For special occasions, parents may bring in snacks for their child's class. You may only bring snack foods that have been purchased from an approved vendor, such as a bakery, grocery store, deli, etc.  No homemade foods may be served in the center.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about our food program.
