What is a Free or Reduced Meal?

Meals served to all students are consistent with USDA recommended dietary guideline allowances, age appropriate caloric goals and nutritional guidelines for Americans.

  • A breakfast combo includes a main breakfast item such as a breakfast sandwich or waffles with fruit and a milk or a juice. A student who qualifies for reduced meals pays $.00 for breakfast.
  • A lunch combo includes the main entree served with a vegetable, fruits, and a milk or a juice. A student who qualifies for reduced meals pays $.40 for lunch.

Additional items sold a la carte are not included with any meals and are charged accordingly.
