NEW SCHOOL MEAL REQUIREMENTS
Knowing what changes were likely to take place, the Freedom Child Nutrition Department has already been gradually making many of these changes so it wouldn’t be such a shock to the students when they were finally required.
Encourage your student to start their day off right and eat breakfast at school.
EAT BREAKFAST AT SCHOOL!
Mornings can be really crazy…the alarm doesn’t go off…the kids don’t want to get up…there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes…or they’re just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you.
Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.
Breakfast at school is affordable, too. If you qualify for free and reduced price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork. You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else.
Help your child start the day right with school breakfast!
Board Policy on Meal Charging
Smart Snacks in School
We are focused on the health of our school environment. Our school district has established nutrition standards for all snacks sold in school by any entity, including parent/student organizations, teachers, boosters, fundraisers, or the food and nutrition services department. These standards for snack sales are in effect from any time before school through 1/2 hour after school, in accordance with the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, the USDA and our district Wellness Policy. Non-compliant foods may be sold from 1/2 hour after school through the end of the day. These standards carefully balance science-based nutrition guidelines with practical and flexible solutions to promote healthier eating on campus.
Self Supporting Department: Nutrition Services is self supporting. We depend on prompt payment from parents for their students' meals to maintain the services we provide to the students. The Nutrition Services Fund differs from other budget segments of the school district in that it is an Enterprise Fund. An Enterprise is an operation that is run like a private business. Revenues should meet or exceed expenditures.
