Food and Nutrition for Our Students

Students may go home at lunchtime and eat with their families or host families or they may choose from a wide variety of restaurants in the city of Fairfield.

For those who prefer to eat in our cafeteria, we serve a delicious and wholesome organic* vegetarian lunch. Protein is provided by a variety of legumes, tofu, nuts, and dairy products. The daily lunch also offers whole grains, a variety of salads and vegetables, fresh fruit, and delicious desserts. Most of the vegetables are grown in our own campus greenhouses or locally grown in Fairfield.

Students can also bring a packed lunch and eat in the cafeteria.

Many American schools have vending machines and cafeterias that offer "junk" food with little nutritional value, such as soda, pop, colas, chips (crisps), and candy. Research has shown that these types of food and drinks are associated with difficulty concentrating, behavioral problems, poor grades, and obesity. Because of this, Maharishi School is committed to offering its students the healthiest meal choices possible. To maximize learning and provide the greatest nutritional value, Maharishi School encourages students to eat a healthy, organic* diet.
