Mundo Verde is currently in the process of transiting our meals program to cook all of our food in house. We are expecting for our kitchen renovation to completed this fall. Details will be sent to parents as new information is available! If you have more questions please email Kelsey Weisgerber at email@example.com.
Special meals are available for students with dietary restrictions or allergies that prevent them from eating the regular meal. Please indicate on the meal sign-up form if you would like a vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, or gluten-free meal.
