Welcome!  Food is a big part of everyone’s well-being, and Marcellus Community Schools students need a place to eat where they can connect with others, recharge, and enjoy a sense of happiness in their school. That’s why we serve food kids love to eat and create programs that encourage fun and discovery.

Our foodservice team is passionate about using fresh, nutritious, minimally processed and locally sourced ingredients, and we foster a sense of adventure in students through experiential learning activities – all with healthier students, healthier communities, and a healthier planet in mind.  Our goal every day is to make sure that Marcellus Community Schools students leave the cafeteria happier and healthier than when they came in!
