Union County Food Service Update   8/11/16

A-la-carte prices have been adjusted for the 2016-17 school year to reflect price changes from our suppliers and to encourage students to eat more fruits and vegetables. Note: The *full meal price for high school students has not changed and will remain $1.25 for Breakfast and $2.50 for lunch. Purchasing a *full meal will provide cost savings for students and provide more food as compared to a-la-carte pricing.  

Beginning the first day of school, Thursday August 11th, the price for a-la-carte entrée items (pizza, sandwiches, casserole, etc.) will be $2.25 when purchased individually. French fries will be $1.50 and the price for milk, fruits and vegetables will be $0.50 when purchased individually. Snacks, such as whole grain crackers and chips will remain the same price as last year. As an added benefit, students who purchase a *full meal, may add an entrée item at a reduced price of only $1.75.

All elementary and middle school students will still receive free breakfast and lunch each day, which includes five items. Students may purchase extra a-la-carte items of their choice.  UCHS does not qualify for the CEP program (free breakfast and lunch) therefore students will still need to pay for lunches, however, there are free and reduced options for students who qualify. Please complete a meal application and turn in to the cafeteria manager.

* A full meal consists of 3-5 meal items. Student must take a minimum of one (fruit or vegetable) and two additional items. A minimum of five items are offered daily, including: meat or meat alternative, grain, fruit, vegetable, and milk. Students may select all five items offered.
