WELCOME BACK TO A NEW SCHOOL YEAR!
We invite you to join us for breakfast and lunch. Our healthy and nutritious meals will keep student's nourished throughout their school day.
If your child qualifies for a free or reduced-price lunch, they also qualify for free or reduced-price breakfast? The School Breakfast Program began as a pilot program in 1966 with the intent of making sure children started the school day with the boost breakfast can give. School breakfast provides at least one-fourth of the nutrients needed by a growing child.Research shows that children who eat breakfast have improved memory, problem-solving skills, verbal fluency and creative abilities. Qualitative research, including research from Harvard University and the University of Minnesota, also points to improved classroom behavior, with students being more alert, happier and ready to learn. Both studies saw an increase in math test scores in children who ate a good breakfast.
||At just $ .30 for a reduced-price breakfast and $1.00 (Elementary Schools) and $1.25 (Secondary Schools) for a paid breakfast, it is the best bargain in town! If you have any questions regarding the school lunch or breakfast program, please contact the Food and Nutrition Services office at 352-726-1931.
What does this mean for our child(ren)?
More vegetables and fruit will be served daily. Each student MUST choose at least three components and one MUST be a vegetable or fruit.
There are a total of five components that make up a lunch: Vegetables (coded green), Milk (coded blue), Fruits (coded red), Meat or Meat Alternate (coded purple) and Grains (coded orange) These colors will be posted on the serving line, so every student can become familiar with the different food groups they represent.
