Students key in their Student IDs to access their Food Service balances to pay for items at school. This system speeds-up our lines and allows you to have more control with your child’s nutrition choices during the school day. Because of cashless processes and the healthier options that are now available, more students are visiting the Student Center during brunch and lunch.

Piper Café Overview

The Piedmont High School Administration, Director of Nutrition and Food Services staff have enhanced the quality and variety of items offered, giving students greater control, promoting awareness of whole food menu options and their nutritional benefits of the foods they choose. This engages students in the process of change and integrates nutrition education into our course curriculum.

Nutrition supports collaboration and a stronger community. Giving our students healthier options during brunch and lunch will only encourage them to remain on campus where they can positively interact with friends, faculty, and staff.

Chef M'Lisa Kelley, PHS Nutrition Director & Executive Chef

Chef M'Lisa (pronounced Melissa) Kelley started her career in the kitchen and garden of her childhood home, helping her mother plan good things to eat and grow that would add to the family dinner table.

This "eat local" way of caring for people has recently become very popular, but it has always had deep roots for Kelley. It has formed the cornerstone of her approach to good food as a way to care for our children and their bodies. She was lucky enough to be chosen as a US delegate to Terra Madre, the international food conference sponsored by Slow Food International, in Torino Italy in 2008, which she attended along with Alice Waters of Chez Pannise fame.

Kelley graduated from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, R.I. Before coming to the Piper Café, Kelley operated restaurants and catered events for Nordstrom, headed up the spa kitchen at the Claremont Resort and Spa in Berkeley, and spent 11 years at Seneca Center, designing and implementing a good food system for in-need children and their families. Kelley makes her home with her husband Troy, and their daughter.
