Food Services Information
Important Meal Policy
Sodexo provides the food service at Pine-Richland School District, adhering to the USDA guidelines, the new Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA), and the Alliance for Healthier Generations snack guidelines.
Changes are in effect for this school year as required by the HHFKA/USDA regulations. Many of the requirements were already in place last year, like adding whole grains and fat free flavored milk. Your student may see additional changes.
A lunch meal is comprised of five food components. They are Meat/Meat Alternate, Grains, Vegetables, Fruits, and Milk. Each student must select at least 3 of the food groups and one of the three must be a fruit or vegetable in 1/2 cup serving. These regulations provide for age appropriate nutrition. Please help your student by encouraging them to take the fruit or vegetable serving for the meal price of $1.80 for K-6 and $1.95 for grades 8-12.
At Sodexo we believe that healthy meals are key to a great learning environment, so we strive to go beyond government guidelines. Encourage your students to participate in school meals programs and include vegetables and fruit in their selections for a delicious healthy meal.
