Dining Plan Information

FPD’s dining plan for the 2022-2023 school year includes the return of an optional, all-inclusive, five-day plan.
Students in 3K through twelfth grade can opt-in to a dining plan that includes a range of delicious and healthy meal choices. FPD’s dining provider, SAGE Dining, uses locally-sourced, organic ingredients as often as possible, including items from FPD’s own gardens. All food is fresh, made the same day, and reviewed by a SAGE Dining dietician to ensure top-quality meals for our Vikings.
