Breakfast + Lunch | Pedestal Foods
Pedestal Foods, a faith-based, innovative culinary provider that focuses solely on educational settings, manages food services at NCCS. Pedestal provides a variety of fresh foods for breakfast, lunch and snacks, while maintaining all recommended safety standards.
Pedestal is also committed to ensuring that NCCS food services remains peanut free, including cooking processes and all retail items sold. With the exception of retail items potentially being produced in a facility with tree nuts, no food items will contain tree nuts, either.
NCCS Food Services loves spicing things up and hosting special themed days throughout the year! From exposing our students to diverse cultures to celebrating local sports teams, Pedestal Foods regularly offers special days with global cuisine and decor. Themed menus are published ahead of time.
A sampling of past themed days have included Hispanic Heritage, Francophile French Cuisine, A Day at the Braves Ballpark, Pacific-Islander Day, and more!
We offer two beautiful cafeterias for our students.
The Upper/Middle School cafeteria is The Blue + White Bistro, and the Lower School cafeteria is the Lil’ Bistro.
Both offer modern sunlit spaces, featuring the day's specials suspended on digital flatscreens above protected serving stations. Our team is happy to assist diners with choices and personalized options. Just ask! We're here for you!

It was very important to the school to offer a great food-services experience to our students with minimal financial impact on our families. Pedestal is an ideal fit because they work within NCCS's pay-as-you-go, preloaded lunch account system.
This means that parents load funds into student lunch accounts, so that students can customize how much they spend or eat each day (or pay nothing if they prefer to bring food from home). Food can be purchased by meal or à la carte.
