There are 56 public schools in the Pittsburgh district. Based on the schools’ ability to cook food, store food, and receive food, the schools are broken into three categories: Central Kitchen, Site Kitchen, and Campus Kitchen.

Of these 56 schools, 21 schools are K-5 schools that were originally built without a kitchen. Because there is no where to prepare food in these schools, the students receive food that was prepared elsewhere.  These schools are categorized as Central Kitchen Schools because they receive their food daily in hot packs from “The Central Kitchen” on the South Side.

cropped-reggie-veggie.pngTwenty six schools in the district are considered Site Kitchen Schools. These schools are a combination of K-5 schools, grade 6-8 schools, and K-8 schools.  Each Site Kitchen School has a full-service kitchen and is able to prepare and serve food to students on site.

The remaining 9 schools are made up of grades 6-12 and 9-12 schools and are called Campus Kitchen SchoolsThe Campus Kitchen Schools are equipped with full-service kitchens and prepare food for the students on site.

Early Childhood classrooms are found in several of our schools throughout the district. If your child is in an Early Childhood program within Pittsburgh Public Schools, they will be eating from the Early Childhood menu that corresponds with their school type. For example, if the Early Childhood classroom is in Greenfield K-8, they will be eating from the Early Childhood – Site Kitchen Menu because Greenfield is a Site Kitchen School.

If your child attends an Early Childhood Center (Chartiers, Crescent, Spring Garden, or Children’s Museum), they will be following the Early Childhood – Central Kitchen Menu.
