  • School Lunch Requirements

    School lunches must meet the applicable recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommend that no more than 30 percent of an individual's calories come from fat, and less than 10 percent from saturated fat. Regulations also establish a standard for school lunches to provide one‐third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances of protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, calcium, and calories. School lunches must meet Federal nutrition requirements, but decisions about what specific foods to serve and how they are prepared are made by local school food authorities.

  • Food Allergies

    If your child has a severe food allergy, you should schedule a meeting with your school nurse and foodservice representative for the school. The USDA has issued policy guidance for schools outlined in FNS Instruction 783-2, Revision 2, Meal Substitutions for Medical or Other Special Dietary Reasons. The nature of your child's food allergy, the reason the allergy prevents the child from eating the regular school meal, and the specific substitutions needed must be specified in a statement signed by a licensed physician. Monthly meetings or calls with the school staff are recommended to ensure your child’s food allergy plan is on target. It is your responsibility to update the school staff with any changes that are occurring with your child’s dietary needs. 

  • Paying for Meals 
    There are three easy ways to pay for school meals:
    1.  Cash -- Turn in an envelope with the student's and teacher's name to the brown box in the office.
    2.  Check -- Make all checks payable to SESD Food Services
    3.  ezschoolpay.com -- You will need your child's ID #.  You can email Dulce Reid to get this number.
