School Lunch:  Good for Kids and Good for your Wallet   

As the cost of everything increases – there is one meal that is still a great value: both nutritionally and economically!  School Lunch is still an incredible bargain costing only $2.50 for elementary students and $3.00 for secondary students.

Every School Lunch Includes Five Food Groups:

  • Milk
  • Vegetables
  • Fruit
  • Grains
  • Meat or protein alternate

Save Money:  Eat School Lunch

  • On average it costs less to buy a school lunch than to bring a lunch from home. 

There is Such a Thing as Free Lunch (and a Reduced Price One Too)

  • All children at participating schools may purchase meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP)
  • Families with incomes at or below 130% and 185 % of the poverty level are eligible for reduced-price meals; these students are charged $.40 for a full lunch.

Healthy Meals Feed Eager Minds

  • School meals consist of no more than 30% of calories from fat and no more than 10% from saturated fat.
  • Students who eat school lunches consume fewer calories from fat than students who bring lunch from home.
  • NSLP participants have substantially lower intakes of added sugar than do non-participants.
  • Compared to lunches from home, school lunches contain:
    • Three times as many dairy products
    • Twice as much fruit
    • Seven times the vegetable amounts
