September Kitchen News

Welcome back!  We are looking forward to another year of providing yummy breakfasts and lunches for our Fox Friends.

It has been exciting to see all the students coming in ready to enjoy some food.

A few key items that we would like to touch base on.

* We offer a full salad bar to our students. Please encourage your child to grab a couple items,  especially if it is something new to them. I like to ask them to grab a few different colored veggies.

* Students must take 3 of 5 food components for a lunch to qualify by government standards as a meal.  Protein * Dairy * Grain * Fruit * Vegetable  Ideally,  they will choose 4 or 5 items.

*Alacarte, Second Serving

We have ala carte items available for students to purchase - if they have money on their account.

Water - $0.50

Capri Sun - $0.50

IntaJuice ‐ $1.75 (2nd/4th Wed starting in Sept)

Fruit/Veggie side $0.50
