Dining Services

Food is a critical part of successful student life at any educational institution, and Riverside Preparatory Academy is committed to serving nutritious and appetizing meals to our cadets. Riverside partners with Aramark Dining Services to provide freshly prepared, healthy food options.
A variety of menu selections, including a salad bar and seasonal fruit, is typically available at each meal.
A Nutrition Specialist is available to review menus and assist with any dietary concerns such as food allergies.

Let's hear from the students:

"I love the salad bar!" - Cadet

"The new food contract and the addition of the salad bar makes for a very pleasant food experience." - Cadet
