Forman School Dining Services Philosophy

The Peirce Dining Hall is the heart of the Forman community where students, teachers, staff, parents, and invited guests come together to enjoy nutritious, and wholesome meals in a welcoming, family-like setting.

The Dining Program provides meals that are freshly prepared, not pre-processed, and includes: local produce, meats and cheeses when available, as well as limited fried foods.

The menus, while focusing on the health and well-being of our community, will offer a diversity of choices to satisfy the appetites of both youths and adults.

Locations & Menus:

The Meal Program

  • A state of the art program that delivers daily fresh cut fruit & yogurts.
  • A salad bar that contains homemade salads, fresh top of the line produce, seasonal locally grown when available, a wide variety of field greens, varied selections of meat & vegetarian proteins, nuts, granola, and croutons.
  • Breakfast features omelets, eggs, French toast, waffle bar every Wednesday and Sunday, vast selection fruit, yogurts, bread and fresh-baked pastry, turkey bacon & sausage.
  • The lunch program offers fresh made entrĂ©e and side salads, artisan style sandwiches and home made soups and dressings, all made with the freshest ingredients and local produce when available.
  • The dinner is more of a home style meal or restaurant experience with all homemade side dishes, and fresh baked breads and dessert

Enjoy the fabulous fare presented by our Executive Chef, Christopher Hurley!
