Food Service at DECA

Deca Prep, Middle and High School have contracted with W.g. Grinders as the food service provider for our school meals (Breakfast and Lunch).

 Meal Service Pickup During Virtual Learning

  • Lunch (and a pre-packaged breakfast pack for the next day) will still be available at PREP daily (Monday-Friday) for all DECA students.
