Policy 802.01

Food Service

A hot lunch program will be provided for all students in the District. Provisions will be made for kitchen facilities in each school or complex of schools. The District may, with Board approval, contract with a private company or corporation for the management of the hot lunch program.

All families having children attending the District will be notified of the current guidelines for free or reduced prices for school meals. A copy of the complete regulations and procedures regarding reduced price and free meals and milk shall be available in the office of the Superintendent.

The cost of lunches will be based on the cost for preparation and serving of food, cost for components of the meal exclusive of federally donated commodities, and the cost for replacement of expendable items.

The price for school lunch will be set annually by the board and will be calculated at a level to encourage a high level of student participation in the program.
