What Makes a Meal?
The federal Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 requires students paying the set meal price to take menu components that meet the meal pattern. The meal pattern consists of FIVE components: meat/meat alternate, grain, fruit, vegetable and milk.
If the minimum number of components for each meal are not chosen by the student, a la carte charges will be charged.
● Must choose at least three of the four offered items to make a meal.
● Must choose at least three of the five offered components to make a meal.
A la Carte:
● Extra entrees, extra sides, chips, ice cream, cookies, etc. are all charged a la carte prices and are not included in the meal.
