Free and Reduced Price Lunches — Penn Manor School District has received the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines for free and reduced price meals for qualified students and their families. These Guidelines will be hand-carried home with your child on the first day of school.
All applications will need to be completed online. If you do not have access to a computer, the main office in each of our buildings is equipped with kiosk machines.
Pricing — Nutritious meals are essential to the growth and development of our children. Well-balanced lunches are available to your child on a daily basis in the school cafeteria. Penn Manor School District participates in the National School Lunch Program, which means that we must meet certain nutritional criteria when we serve your child lunch. Each lunch we serve offers your child protein, fruits, vegetables, bread, and milk. The lunch prices for the 2020-2021 school year as follows: elementary-$2.35, secondary-$2.50, $3.50, $3.75; reduced lunches-$0.40; and adult lunches-$3.75/$4.50. Breakfast prices are: elementary-$1.25, secondary-$1.50, reduced price-$0.40; adult-$2.00, milk-$0.60.
Offer vs. Serve — We encourage you to discuss menu selections at home with your child. Help him or her learn to make wise nutritious menu selections. Your child may refuse one or two menu items while proceeding through the lunch line and still meet the requirements of the school lunch program.
Meal tickets — (Pre-paid breakfasts/lunches): As a service to parents and to help students avoid lost or forgotten lunch money, lunches can be purchased in advance by either check or cash. Checks should be made payable to: “Penn Manor Food Service.” We will remind your child when his/her lunch ticket is getting low. Please indicate on the check your child’s name and grade. The cost for a full-price meal ticket is $50 for elementary and secondary. The reduced-price meal ticket is $10. In addition, pre-paid money also can be used to purchase ala carte food items.
My School Bucks — All prepaid money will be available for student purchases of breakfast, lunch, and ala carte. Also, parents will have the ability to print out a copy of their child’s eating history report. This history report will show you all dates and times that your child has made food purchases within the past 30 days. This service can only be utilized if parents register students on the website MySchoolBucks.com. From this site, you will create your account and add money to your child’s school meal account. All you need is your child’s name, student ID number and school zip code.
Menu — Each month, menus will be posted on the district website and in the cafeteria. In addition to the regular daily entree, your child can choose the alternate hot or cold sandwich (B lunch), a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich (C lunch), or yogurt and string cheese (D lunch), offered daily. In addition, ala carte items such as ice cream, water, and baked snack items are offered on a daily basis for an additional cost.
Elementary Schools — Every Wednesday a Type “S” lunch will be offered. Type “S” lunch is a chef salad consisting of a bed of lettuce/salad greens and a dinner roll. The chef salad may include the following protein food items: grated cheese, ham, hard-boiled egg, turkey, tuna salad and chicken salad. The Type “S” lunch will include the dessert and milk listed on the menu for that day.
Power Packs Program — The program serves Penn Manor families in need by providing them with a recipe and the main ingredients to make one weekend meal; eight or nine grocery items, including protein and fresh produce; milk every two to three weeks; and tips for healthy living. Penn Manor residents can sign up for Power Packs by completing an online application here and can find out more information about the program here.
