Wild Lilac Child Development Community is proud to serve children organic, wholesome and nutritious breakfast, lunch and snacks each day. Wild Lilac adheres to the standards of the USDA Food Program. Our amazing cook, Michelle prepares whole organic and vegetarian food, providing Wild Lilac children with fuel for playing and learning! The children are invited to participate in meal preparation which piques their interest in healthful foods and supports them in developing meaningful connections with the food they eat.
At Wild Lilac, we grow seasonal produce in our onsite garden and we buy what we cannot grow ourselves from local farms in order to support our Northwest neighbors and to practice environmental sustainability.
At Wild Lilac all meals are served family-style. During meals and snacks, teachers sit and eat with the children, engaging them in conversation for relaxed and pleasant mealtimes.
Wild Lilac is a nut-free school as a precaution for severe allergies; we ask that no nuts enter the school.
