About our program

The Food Service Department of Delaware Academy Central School District at Delhi strives to provide students and staff with tasty nutritious meals. Our department consists of 8 dedicated staff who take pride in preparing an average of 700 meals per day. Each building offers a variety of meal choices which include whole grains, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables and low fat milk. We hope the students enjoy our meals as much as we enjoy preparing them.
