School Lunch and Breakfast Program/Generally

  1. Purpose and Objective

    The School Board will attempt to provide facilities for serving breakfast and lunch to all students at school, and for employees of the School Division. Cafeteria food shall be sold to students and others at a price which will pay the cost of maintaining the cafeteria.

    Breakfast and lunches shall constitute balanced meals provided at moderate cost to the student.

    The cost of meals to school employees shall be higher than the cost to students and shall reflect the actual cost to the School Division of preparing and serving said meals.

  2. Operations

    The School Board is responsible for any school lunch program operated on school property. The School Board shall fix the price of meals and determine the adequacy, safety, and conformation to all applicable legal standards and statutes, of all facilities apparatus, and procedures used.

    The School Board directs the Superintendent to subscribe to the Federal School Lunch and Breakfast Program which provides balanced hot meals. In order to participate, the School Board chairman and the Superintendent are authorized to certify that the School Division complies with state and federal regulations.
