Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the cost for a full pay student meal?

A.   At the elementary schools, $2.25. At the intermediate and high school, $2.50.

Q. Why do full pay meal prices keep going up?

A.   We are now required to match the free meal reimubursement price, with the full pay meal price.   

Q. Does the Food Service receive money to support their programs from the school system?

A.   No. Our department is supported by cash taken in at our registers and meal reimbursements from the State of Indiana (USDA monies) .

Q. Are the food donated by the USDA free?

A.   No We are assigned commodity dollars each year according to our lunch participation. We then use these dollars to send pounds of chicken, cheese, potatoes, beef, pork, eggs, etc. to processors. We then either put these products on our yearly food bid or purchase the foods directly from the processor at a discounted price. We also purchase available fruits and vegetables from the State at discounted prices.

Q. Why do I see so many carrots and celery on the elementary menus?

A.   The new meal standards require students to have 3 servings of red/orange vegetable per week. Although we will continue to offer sweet potato fries as an alternative, this is not a popular food and we offer the carrots as an alternative. As we use Offer vs Serve, meaning we can offer the food but the student can choose to take all or part of the meal, we also offer celery as a choice too.
