On September 9, 2022, Pennsylvania announced that beginning on October 1, breakfasts would be free for all students, regardless of a family's ability to pay, for the remainder of the school year. Students will be eligible for one free breakfast per day. Full price will be charged for second breakfasts and a la carte snacks. The District is still looking for candidates to help us serve breakfast and lunch.
Meals in 2022-2023
Students will be required to pay full price for their meals this year, unless they are approved for free/reduced price meals. Applications will be sent home on the first day of school, but families may already fill them out online
. The Board approved starting the year with the same meal prices for 2022-2023
that were approved for 2021-2022 school year. These prices as well as a la carte
prices are subject to change if market conditions necessitate. Menus are online, but subject to change, as we are still struggling with global supply chain issues.
New this year, West Shore is using Titan’s Family Portal for parents who want to see their child’s purchase history. Instructions on how to register for this account are found online
. Families who have already registered their account may go directly to the web portal
. TITAN will charge a processing fee of $2.60 for each item added to your cart; however, there is no fee to view your child’s account balance or a history of their meal purchases.

Physical Activity and Nutrition Advisory Council Seeks Members
The District’s Physical Activity and Nutrition Advisory Council (PANAC) serves as an advisory committee regarding student health issues, periodically reviewing and recommending changes to the District’s Student Physical Activity and Nutrition Policy. PANAC also serves as a Food Services Advisory Council providing students, parents/guardians, and staff the opportunity to provide feedback on the District’s Food Services Program.
PANAC continues currently looking for students, parents, and staff who may be interested in participating on the council this year. This year's meetings are scheduled at 3:30 PM on 9/14/22, 11/9/22, 2/8/23, and 4/12/23 at the Administration Center for Education. Each building is encouraged to have a staff member, a parent, and/or a student participate. Please contact Dr. Argot [email protected]
if you are interested in volunteering.
What does a meal look like?
We are providing “offer vs. serve” this year. This means that food service will offer fruit, vegetable, milk, grain, and meat or meat alternative for lunch, but students only need to take three of these components. One must be a fruit or a vegetable. For instance, a chicken patty on a bun with sliced apples would count as a meal. Milk is not a requirement. Students may have two fruits and two vegetables as part of their free meal.
Parents of students who have a medical necessity for variations to the meal requirements are encouraged to have their student's medical provider complete and return the Medical Plan of Care for School Food Service
to your school's office.
