Nutrition

A student breakfast consists of 4 food groups. To qualify for a student priced meal, free, reduced or full priced, the student must take at least 3 of the 4 groups offered. The groups are either 2 grains, 1 grain and 1 protein, a fruit or juice, and milk. If a student only wants a milk and a cereal, they must also take a piece of fruit. That would be three things. Beginning this year, students MUST take a fruit at breakfast. Because we are a federally operated program, we must follow those guidelines to ensure a student is getting the minimum nutrition they need to learn. When the necessary things are not taken, a higher a la carte price would be charged.

We offer 8 oz. servings of milk in; White 1% and White & Chocolate Fat-Free Milk.

Free/Reduced

Did you know that Free & Reduced Meal Applications may be filled out at any time during the school year? If your circumstances change and you think you may qualify, applications can be printed from this website under quick links. Applications can also be obtained through your student's school office or the cafeteria office.

Sometimes the menu may change without notice due to circumstances beyond our control.

New for the 2018-2019 school year

  • Student Salad options are available weekly
  • Hot Breakfast is available on Fridays
  • Many NEW lunch items have been added to the menus
  • Many new items have been added to the breakfast menu
  • Scotty PAWS (Product Assessing With Students) starts in November.  We will have a small focus groups (by grade) trying new items and representing their grade!

Under the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 there are required dietary components that must be selected in order to be eligible as a “meal” in the national School Lunch Program. Not only does this offer a well balanced, healthy meal for our students, but it also avoids costly “ala carte” charges for individual items. (state and federal reimbursements as well as a stipend from the district makeup the difference in cost) This is especially important for our free and reduced eligible students.

The meal pattern consists of five food components:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Grains
  • Meat / Meat alternatives (proteins)
  • Fluid Milk 

All students at any grade level MUST  take:

At least 3 of the 5 components AND

ONE of the selections must be a fruit or vegetable

 In order to reduce the amount of food waste, we have chosen to implement an “Offer Versus Served” approach to the regulation. Basically, it allows the student to choose different options within the components that are more appealing to them compared to the old fashioned meals where you only received what was served as the special meal of the day. For example, the necessary fruit/vegetable component may be satisfied by choosing from either:

  • An assortment of fresh fruit
  • An assortment of canned fruit
  • A 4 oz fruit juice
  • A side salad - available daily and included in all entree meals
  • The vegetable of the day

With your help, we can continue to strive towards providing a quality meal, with less waste and encourage students to make wise meal choices. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns or to obtain an application for free and reduced meals.
