New for school year 2016, all elementary students have the option of a FREE breakfast and lunch!
Did you know that our Food Services program is one of the very few self-supporting programs in the state?
This means that no local taxpayer dollars are needed to fund this very successful program! The cost of running the program is entirely paid for by revenue from the sales of meals and from the federally subsidized hot lunch program.
Did you know that over 50% of the students in the Oxford Hills are eligible for free or reduced priced lunch and breakfast?
Many families in the Oxford Hills meet the criteria established by the federal government for their children to receive free or reduced priced meals. The federal government subsidizes the cost of the meals for these students. It’s important for parents to complete the application for their children each and every year. Even if you don’t believe your family qualifies, the school system needs this information to help ensure our communities receive the maximum amount we are eligible for in state and federal subsidies.
Did you know that our Food Services program serves over 3,150 meals every day?!!!
With our high school’s central kitchen staff of seven, seventeen employees at our elementary schools and middle school, and two delivery drivers, we manage to feed breakfast and lunch to students and staff across the district. At our elementary schools, students enjoy healthy meals that meet the stringent nutrient requirements prescribed by the federal hot lunch program. We aim to please! If students don’t like the main course, they can opt for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a cheese sandwich. There is also a salad bar at each and every elementary school. Our Food Services staff also makes sure that we meet the needs of our students with special dietary requirements.
