The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonproft private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or no-cost lunches to children each school day.
In order for a student breakfast to be considered reimbursable, the meal must include a minimum of three food items, one of which must be a fruit. In order for a student lunch to be considered reimbursable, the meal must include a minimum of three different food groups, one of which must be a fruit or a vegetable. If minimum requirements for a student reimbursable meal are not met, a la carte prices will be charged.
So, what’s included in a Reimburseable School Meal?
For Lunch choose 3-5 options (one must be a fruit or vegetable)
For Breakfast 3-4 options (one must be a fruit or juice)

Our district is committed to providing every student with the tools they need to succeed, including nutritious meals they can enjoy.

• All students have access to nutritious school meals
• Families save money and don’t have to complete school meal applications
