Free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch meals are available to students who qualify. Families that satisfy the income standard prescribed under section 9(b) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (42 U.S.C. 1758(b)) will qualify for reduced-price, or free-price school meals. Under section 9(b), the income limit for reduced-price school meals is 185 percent of the Federal poverty guidelines, as adjusted. Section 9(b) also requires that these guidelines be revised annually. The guidelines can be found on school meal applications and in the letter that informs families about free or reduced school meals that is annually communicated from the school district to each students household. Applications for free and reduced-price meals in English and Spanish are available in each school office. Food and Nutritional Services accepts Federal Meal Applications anytime throughout the school year, so if you are not eligible now, you may apply any time if your circumstances change that might then qualify your child or children to receive federal meal benefits.

The National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program have been going through major changes. More grains, fruits, and vegetables have been added to your child's lunch and breakfast menus at schools. MyPlate is the current nutrition guide published by the United States Department of Agriculture, depicting a place setting with a plate and glass divided into five food groups. It replaced the USDA's MyPyramid guide on June 2, 2011, ending 19 years of USDA food pyramid diagrams. MyPlate will be displayed on food packaging and used in nutrition education in the United States. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
