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 Ms. Deb
Shaffer or Dr. Ryan Argot at 717-938-9577 if interested.
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 and lunch, students must take three items including
at least one fruit or vegetable in order to purchase the regular meal.
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.
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 Wellness 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 looking for students, parents, and staff who may be interested in participating on the council this year. This year's remaining meeting is scheduled at 4:00 PM on 4/22/20 at the Administration Center for Education. Please contact Dr. Argot [email protected] if you are interested in volunteering.
