Special Information for Graduating Seniors
Shortly after their final day of school, seniors will automatically receive a meal account refund request form if they have a positive account balance. Remaining funds may be transferred to younger students or (if greater than $4) refunded to the family. For graduates who do not return the refund form by June 20 and for those graduates with positive account balances $4 or under, the money will anonymously be donated to school meal accounts of those students with recognized economic challenges. In order to request a refund, the completed refund request form
must be returned to the food service office (PO Box 803, New Cumberland, PA 17070) by June 20.

Summer Meals 2022
Monday - Thursday June 13 - August 11 (closed July 4), Hillside and Washington Heights will be open for breakfast 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM and lunch 10:45 AM - 12:30 PM. Children and students to the age of 18 from all over are welcome to eat meals with us, regardless of their family's financial status. Those obtaining meals will have to eat them on site. Unless the federal regulations change, we will not be able to provide Grab and Go meals.
Meals in 2022-2023
If available, the District's will pursue federal waivers which would enable schools to provide breakfast and lunch for free again next school year; however, at this time, current regulations only allow free/reduced price meals for students whose families qualify. The Board approved keeping the meal prices for 2022-2023
the same as what was approved for 2021-2022 school year. These prices are subject to change if market conditions necessitate.
What does a meal look like?
We are providing “offer vs. serve” this year and will continue providing “offer vs. serve” for our summer programs. 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.
