HOT LUNCH PROGRAM

Students have the option of bringing a lunch or ordering a hot lunch to have at school. STA’s hot lunch program, provided by Food Service Professionals (FSP), follows federally approved guidelines for limiting food and drink with high sugar content.  Each lunch contains one-third of the daily nutritional requirements for an elementary school-aged student through the following three components:

  • The Hot Pack – contains entree and vegetables

  • The Cold Pack – contains fruit, dessert, utensils, and napkins

  • One-half pint of milk 

The cost for lunch is $3.40 per day for the regular menu with milk included.  Students may also order extra milk for $0.50.  

The principle goal of FSP’s elementary school food service is Good Food for Better Learning. Research has long indicated that absenteeism and tardiness are reduced among children participating in school lunch and breakfast programs. In addition, teachers observe that general academic performance and behavior are markedly improved among students who eat a wholesome breakfast and lunch.
