Students will 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, Nutrition Director, and Parents’ Club seek to change the eating behavior of students at PHS such that an increased amount of students will eat a more nutritious lunch and stay on campus to help foster a positive student community. This is accomplished by enhancing the quality and variety of items offered; giving students greater control in their selections; promoting awareness of whole food menu options and their nutritional benefits; engaging students in the process of change; and integrating nutrition education into our course curriculum.

We are firm believers that 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.

“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
—Luciano Pavarotti

Attention all students!

Students wishing to use their card/student ID number to purchase food must have their ID card to hand to the cashier at the time of purchase. No exceptions! Student ID number can not be verbally communicated any longer. Sharing or borrowing someone else’s card will not be permitted. The photo will be checked to make sure it matches the student who hands it to the cashier.

School Nutrition Advisory Committee (SNAC)

The School Nutrition Advisory Committee is committed to infusing new energy and direction to the PHS Nutrition Program. SNAC is comprised of students, faculty, administration, parents, and the Nutrition Director. This committee provides a leadership role by working collaboratively and recommending changes in operations, nutritional program development, awareness campaigns, and research.

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

Chef M'Lisa (pronounced Melissa) Kelley started her career in her childhood home's kitchen and garden, helping her mother to 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 kids and their bodies. She was lucky enough to be chosen to be 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 departments stores. She also headed up the spa kitchen at the Claremont Resort and Spa in Berkeley, CA. She has spent the last 11 years at Seneca Center, designing and implementing a good food system for in-need children and their families. Kelley makes her home in Berkeley with her husband Troy, and their 12-year-old daughter.
