Healthy choices

Our catering provider Daily offers a hot school lunch from either a set menu (Pre-G1) or self-served from a hot buffet station (G2-G12). The school hot lunch program follows strict Latvian government guidelines of low-salt, low-sugar, no fried or processed food meal plans, while offering a variety of items (including vegetarian and vegan options). The menu is changed often with focus on seasonal items and local produce. Secondary students also have the option of purchasing salads or sandwiches if they don’t want a daily hot lunch. Breakfast items, healthy snacks, juice and bottled water are also available for purchase during designated times only. Menus are located on the school website.

This is a unique school year for us all, and all aspects of the school, including the cafeteria, have had to adapt and come up with feasible solutions to get students and staff back onto campus in a safe environment while still complying with the Latvian government regulations. In an effort to keep the cafeteria open, ISL has made recommendations to our catering services, Daily, and has modified internal structures to ensure this safety. Some changes will include:

  • streamlining the school lunch menu to be more “grab-and-go” style to decrease contact time spent in line;
  • rearranging the school lunch times to decrease number of students in cafeteria;
  • spacing the cafeteria tables further apart and into grade level zones to distance students and offer more space;
  • providing outdoor seating (weather permitting) for staff.

FOOD ALLERGIES: For those students with food allergies or special diets, please fill out this form and schedule a consultation with the Cafeteria Manager. Also, please be aware that our baked items are made in ISL kitchen or come from Daily bakery off-campus, so baked items may contain trace amounts of or come into contact with wheat, eggs, milk, soy, peanuts or tree nuts.
