What makes a meal?

During regular years, the District 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.  Currently, we are participating in the National Summer Meals Program, which provides free meals for all students, but requires they take all of the meal components.
 
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, signed by a physician, to the school nurse or Food Services Department at the Administration Center.

What's Cooking in 2020

Until further notice, all students are eligible to receive breakfast and lunch for free this school year.  Thanks to changes in regulations, that includes students who are returning for in person instruction the week of October 13, and those who are continuing to work remotely with Distance Learning 2.0.

Free In Person Meals
When they return on October 13, all students will be eligible for a free breakfast and/or lunch at school. Students will be able to choose between the day’s hot entrée, cold entrée, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Students will be required to take all meal components including a fruit, vegetable, and their choice of white or chocolate milk. This is a change in the free and reduced program from last school year.

We will continue to sell milk and bottled water, but we do encourage students to take the entire free meal, instead of buying just a drink. Unfortunately, following currently government guidelines, we are not permitted to distribute milk only for free. Students must take the entire meal and all its sides.

A la carte offerings will be extremely limited as we transition back; however, we intend on offering more a la carte choices (especially at the secondary level) by November 1.

Free Grab-and-Go Bagged Meals
District schools will continue to provide free Grab-and-Go Bagged Meals for ALL children 18 and younger regardless of their economic status.

Looking Ahead
We anticipate being permitted to offer free meals for all children through December 31; however, as we experienced this summer, guidelines are subject to sudden changes.

Paper applications can also be obtained at your child’s school and returned with your child once completed.
