Guide To Dining
Welcome to Rutland Town School
Rutland Town School dining services are managed by Fitz Vogt & Associates. Here at RTS we offer a program that meets the needs of today’s student. Each year you will experience exciting changes, fresh menus, and new enhancements to your dining program. These changes are a result of the feedback and input of many students, parents, and staff members.

Special Dietary Needs
If you have special dietary needs please consult with the Food Service Director. All efforts will be made to meet your special needs.
We have a wealth of resources available to our guests, including the expert guidance of a registered dietitian. Arrangements can be made for individual consultations concerning any dietary need, such as sports nutrition, weight control, food allergies, or medically prescribed diets.
Supporting Local Farms & Food
Fitz Vogt is a proud supporter of local agriculture and the Buy Local initiative.
The Rutland Area Farm and Food Link (RAFFL) is working to build a farm and food system that involves and benefits everyone in the Rutland region of Vermont.
Menus will be written seasonally with an emphasis on the use of fresh, local and regional ingredients. Our purchasing program has been developed with environmentally-sound sourcing policies in mind that include: humanely raised meat and eggs, rBGH-free dairy products, and the use of locally-grown produce.
The FSD is available to answer any nutritional or allergy-related questions. Fitz Vogt employs a full-time registered dietitian to address further concerns. The dining staff will make any reasonable accommodations for students with allergies. Identifiers are also placed in front of the meal selections to denote which allergens they may contain.
