There will be NO CHARGE for meals during the 2021-2022 school year
We are an offer vs. serve school nutrition program.
For lunch we offer a selection of entrees (including whole grain rolls, tortillas and bread), fresh fruit and vegetables and choice of low fat or fat free milk. A full meal is at least 3 of the 5 components including at least one vegetable or fruit. Entrees are counted as two components since they include our grain component.
