FREE AND REDUCED PRICE MEALS
Applications for free and reduced price meals will be sent home on the first day of school. Students of families who qualify are able to eat a free/reduced breakfast and lunch every day. Families with economic difficulties are encouraged to return the application as soon as possible to ensure the District has time to process the applications in a timely fashion. Students whose family qualified for this benefit last year will remain at the same level of eligibility for 30 days of school or until the family’s new application is processed. New applications are always accepted. Once approved, eligibility remains in place for the remainder of the school year.

WHAT MAKES A MEAL?
West Shore participates in the National School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. These programs require certain meal components be taken by the students in order for us to provide meals at the prices listed above. For meals, we offer fruits, vegetables, meat (or meat alternatives), grain, and milk. For breakfasts, students must take three items in order to purchase the regular meal. For lunch, students must take three items, but are also required to take at least a fruit or vegetable. If students do not take the required items, cashiers will encourage them to take the necessary items before charging a la carte prices. For more details about the meal components, please see our reimbursable breakfast and lunch information on the website. The District is committed to providing healthy meal options for all students. Substitutions and modifications to meals can be made for students with disabling special dietary needs. In order for these accommodations to be made, parents should return a completed Medical Plan of Care for School Food Service form (found online as one of our department documents), signed by a physician, to the school nurse or Food Services Department at the Administration Center.
The West Shore School District is an equal opportunity provider and Food Services Department is always looking to add new staff members to our substitute food service roster. More information about working for food services is found here. Please contact Mrs. Shaffer or Dr. Argot at 717-938-9577 if interested.
