Food Services

We recognize that nutrition impacts classroom performance, so we have designed our menus and food preparation to provide excellent nutrition and teach health wellness. We prepare our lunch menus to provide both appeal and proper nutrition. The variety of our menus ensures that our students get all of the necessary nutrients associated with good health, clear thinking, and a balanced diet.

Free Meals

The USDA announced a waiver extension that will allow children access to free meals through December 31, 2020. Students can receive one breakfast and one lunch at no cost for each day school is in session. Thank you for your patience and support as we navigate through the these unexpected changes. Please contact us via email or phone at (724) 637-2091, ext. 1760 with any questions, and see our free meals flyer for more information.

Wellness

Wellness is one of the goals of the district's comprehensive plan that goes through 2022. For more information, please see our District Wellness page

National School Lunch Program (NSLP). The NSLP is a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritionally balanced, low cost or free meals to qualifying students. The food and beverages we sell or serve on our campuses meet the state and federal requirements, which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We encourage our families to apply for meal benefits by completing a Free and Reduced Meal Application.
