Well fed kids are happy kids! And they do better in school too!
We offer lunches to our students every school day, or students may bring a sack lunch to school. We ask that parents pay for their children’s lunches online through the Infinite Campus login page.
Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act
The national Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act has resulted in the development of a federally mandated change in school lunches. The following are the main goals of this new meal pattern:
- Increased servings of fruit and vegetables (with weekly required offerings of dark green and red/orange type vegetables)
- Setting calorie limits for three levels
Shoshoni school lunches now offer increased servings of fruits and vegetables and incorporate more whole grains, limiting the amount of meat and meat alternates and reducing the amount of sodium in our meals.
The "Shoshoni Lunchroom Favorite Meals" now meet the new federally mandated changes, and they’re as tasty as ever! We ask for your help and support by encouraging your child to try these new recipes.
Offer vs. Serve
The goals of Offer vs. Serve (OVS) are to reduce food waste and allow students to choose the foods they prefer. We offer food from all of the food groups (meat/meat alternates, grains/breads, fruits and vegetables, and milk) to everyone. Students may choose at least three items from the food groups; one must be a fruit or a vegetable. We encourage students to choose food from all five food groups, but they are not required to do so. Many times there will be two choices of both fruits and vegetables.
