Schools across the United States offer meals to students that meet the reimbursement guidelines from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). School meals are priced as a unit, and we receive federal and state reimbursement to offset our costs.
To get the most for your money, encourage your child(ren) to purchase a complete meal.
For breakfast, students may choose:
If students choose at least 3 components one must be fruit/vegetable (milk, fruit, grain and/or meat/meat alternate), their breakfast will be at the reimbursable meal rate. If they only choose 2 components, we must charge for each item separately, as the selections would not meet the USDA's requirements for a complete reimbursable meal.
For lunch, students may choose and must have a serving of fruit or vegetable on their tray:
1 serving Milk (1/2 pint fluid milk)
1 serving Fruit
If students choose at least 3 components (milk, fruit, grain, meat/meat alternate), with one being a fruit and/or vegetable (1/2 cup minimum), their lunch will be at the reimbursable meal rate. If they only choose 2 components, or do not take a fruit or vegetable, we must charge for each item separately, as the selections would not meet the USDA's requirements for a complete reimbursable meal.
