Meal Guidelines (complete meal price vs. à la carte)

Complete Meal

  • A flat rate charged for a meal that meets federal guidelines for nutrition.
  • A full student lunch requires at least 3 components: 
    • a choice of entrée supplying protein and grain
    • up to two(2) vegetable side dishes
    • one (1) fruit side dish, and milk

À La Carte (individual pricing)

  • If students do not fulfill the requirements of a meal they are charged "à la carte" prices for each item, usually resulting in a higher cost than the flat rate.
  • Students will be charged inpidual pricing if a fruit or vegetable is not taken with lunch.
