NEW  STANDARDS…..HEALTHY CHOICES FOR YOUR STUDENT

As a participating school in The National School Lunch ( Breakfast Program ) we comply with the Healthy Hungry-Free Kids Act of 2010. The complete implementation will occur over multiple years.

Changes include:
•    Choices of low-fat (1%) and fat-free milk
•    Students must select a fruit or/and vegetable with every meal (we offer fresh salad daily)
•    Specific weekly amounts of dark green, red/orange, and starchy vegetables will be offered
•    In addition weekly amounts of beans, peas, other legumes must be offered
•    All bread items contain at least 51% of whole grains
We are limiting:
•    Foods that contain added saturated fat and trans fat
•    Foods high in added salt/sodium
We also meet specific calorie ranges for grade levels

We are currently meeting all of these standards.

Breakfast is served daily starting at 7:00 am at both campus locations.

DID YOU KNOW?

The National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are programs of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provide low-cost or free meals to children each school day.

Do I Qualify?

Your student(s) may qualify for free or reduced priced breakfast or lunch if your household income meets the USDA Income Eligibility Guidelines (based on household size and income), or if your family currently receives SNAP benefits. Your students(s) may also qualify if they are considered to be a foster child, migrant, homeless, or runaway.

To see if you qualify, please submit an application or contact The Pinnacle School Food Authority. We ask that you complete the application to maximize available funding from state and federal resources, as well as to provide certain meal and other benefits that may be available for your child. The eligibility for these funds and programs is linked to whether your child is eligible for free or reduced price meals in the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs.
