Sweet Home Central School District is pleased to inform our families that Sweet Home Food Service Department will be offering free breakfast and free lunch to all students in our School District for the 2021-2022 school year.
What does this mean for children that attend Sweet Home Central School District all students are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school for NO CHARGE every day for the entire 2021-2022 school year.
To ensure your child continues to receive free meals - and to to ensure the free meal program can continue - the district is requesting each and every household complete a Household Income Form. Completion of this form will help the District maximize the amount of state and federal aid that it receives, thereby maximizing resources available to students. A paper copy of the form can be found in the 2021-2022 District Calendar mailed to all district residents.
Further questions on this program can be directed to Ms. Kristi Sajdak at 250-1446 or via email at [email protected]
An Introduction to School Nutrition:
We know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!
The Sweet Home Central School District Food Service Program is self-funded, offering a comprehensive school breakfast and lunch program to all students in grades PK-12. Based upon federal dietary guidelines, menus offered to students are nutritionally sound and offer a variety of popular foods designed to please varied palates. A la carte items are available for purchase daily.
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Farm-to-School for Fresh Fruits & Vegetables
Across the country, an increasing number of schools and districts have begun to source more foods locally and to provide complementary educational activities to students that emphasize food, farming, and nutrition. This nationwide movement is designed to enrich children’s bodies and minds while supporting local economies is often referred to as “farm to school.”
A Farm-to-School Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program can be an important catalyst for change in our efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. It has also been proven to be a successful way to introduce kids and teens to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have the opportunity to sample.
