Meal Pricing & More
2021-2022 Meal Information
All students qualify for free meals for 2021-2022. You can review that information via this link. This program is available to schools and districts as part of the waivers issued by the USDA. All enrolled students of the Pine-Richland School Districts are eligible to receive a nutritional breakfast and lunch each school day at no charge to your household.
If you believe your household would be within the Free & Reduced thresholds, we ask that you still complete an application so that your students are on file for other programs that the school participates in for low-income households. No further action is required of you. Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without paying a fee. The free meal must consist of at least 3 of the 5 meal components. A la Carte items must still be purchased. Click here to complete an application.
Setting Up a Food Services Account
Please note that a free online account can be set up at www.schoolcafe.com to monitor student balances and to request automatic low-balance email reminders. If paying by check, please provide student name and student ID number. Checks should be written out to Pine-Richland Cafeteria Fund (PRCF) and mailed
to the PR Food Services Department, which is located at 702 Warrendale Rd., Gibsonia, PA 15044. If you would like to place any restrictions on your student’s meal accounts, please contact the food service department at 724-625-3550.
Food choice matters and Sodexo, Pine-Richland School District’s food service provider, continues to make changes to allow our students and staff to have better food choices. The National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs have made additional regulation changes that Sodexo feels will allow more menu options and improve product availability.
Sodexo is always cooking up improvements. Sodexo works with students, parents, staff, and school directors to obtain their thoughts and suggestions on improving the program. Some of the requests include providing meals with a higher quality of food as well as offering:
- More scratch-cooking products
- More plant-based options
- More fresh products
To be able to offer these options, a new pricing system was introduced to allow more flexibility for meals. You will see two types of meals offered, the first is the DAILY meal and the second - the RAM meal. A variety of lunch options will be available at both prices. Those with free and reduced meals will enjoy the same options as well.
