Husky Cafe

The Husky Cafe has an exciting, and healthy menu!  The Cafe will be open daily for breakfast and lunch to serve your student’s nutritional needs.  We are very proud to announce our participation in the Federal Government guidelines of the Healthy Hunger-Free Act.  

Our menu features healthy grains, fruits and vegetables, lower fat foods and more student-based choices.  Most Husky Cafe choices will be similar to what you make at home.  As required by the Federal guidelines.

All students will be encouraged to make healthy choices that include fruits and vegetables.  The Cafe will offer delicious chicken wraps, chef salads, a daily vegetarian option, fresh fruit, juices, and more!  

North East Carolina Preparatory School is committed to providing a school environment that promotes and protects children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. NECP’s policy is as follows:

  • All students in grades K-12 will have opportunities, support, and encouragement to be physically active on a regular basis

  • Foods and beverages sold or served at school, breakfast and lunch, school will meet the nutrition recommendations of the S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

  • To the maximum extent possible, we participate in available federal school meal programs, including the School Breakfast Program and National School Lunch Program.
