Food and Nutrition Program Administration – School Nutrition Programs

Food and Nutrition Service helps local schools and districts work to decrease salt and fat, increase fiber and use low fat dairy products, whole grains, and fresh fruits and vegetables in students’ meals. Find more resources, guidelines and information about these programs on our website sections about Health and Wellness, School Nutrition Programs (especially Meal Patterns and Menu Planning) and the Food Distribution Program (see the whole grain pilot program information under Partners). The White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity provided a number of recommendations on healthy food in schools. Read the report on the Let’s Move website.

Community Eligibility Provision
Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a new provision that makes it easier for high-need schools to serve free meals to all students.

In order to participate, local education authorities and/or schools must meet a minimum level of identified students for free meals, agree to serve free lunches and breakfasts to all students; and agree to cover with non-federal funds any costs of providing free meals to all students above amounts provided in federal assistance. To read more, choose the Community Eligibility Provision page at left.

Smart Snacks in School
The Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards support better health for our kids and echo the good work already taking place in schools across the country. The new standards preserve flexibility for time-honored traditions like fundraisers and bake sales, and provide ample transition time for schools. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is committed to working closely with students, parents, school stakeholders and the food and beverage industries to implement the new guidelines, and make the healthy choice the easy choice for America’s young people. View more information on Smart Snacks in School.

Farm to School is a nationwide collaborative effort to connect school districts with local farmers for the purpose of serving healthy school meals while utilizing local fresh foods. Farm to School aims to meet the diverse needs of school nutrition programs in an efficient manner, to support regional and local farmers and thereby strengthen local food systems and to provide support for health and nutrition education. View more information and resources on Farm to School.

The After School Care Program is one of the School Nutrition Programs the USDA is targeting for growth. If you provide an after school care program which meets regularly, is organized and supervised and has an educational or enrichment component, you may be eligible to claim reimbursement for snacks through this program. Contact us to apply for this program.

Students and families welcome to North Middle School!
We have a computerized accounting system that allows families to deposit money into a family food service account. Only one account is used for all family members. This is a debit system, which means that funds must be deposited before withdrawing money to cover the cost of breakfast or lunch. All students will be issued a four (4-digit number that they will enter into the lunchroom computer. This number stays with the student from year to year. Payments for breakfast or lunch are automatically deducted from the family account. Every one must have an account, even if a student is only buying milk for cold lunch. All students must either bring a bag lunch from home or purchase a hot lunch. Canned beverages are not allowed in the cafeteria. Soda and energy drinks in any type of container are not allowed. Food Service payments can be made at each school, online (there is a convenience fee of $2.75 to use this service) or mailed to the School Nutrition office at MFHS (W142 N8101 Merrimac Dr., Menomonee Falls). Place your check in an envelope with your child’s name, the parent’s name and family account number on it. If making a payment online, please access North ’sweb page.

The schools in the Lennox School District are on a computer system

The school operated lunch program is open to serve students breakfast and hot lunch at a reasonable price. Students may bring sack lunches. A la carte is available for high school students at an additional price.
The schools in the Lennox School District are on a computer system
(Wordware) for keeping records of lunch charges. All students in the family are under one account. However, each student has their own lunch ID number. This number is used as they go through the lunch line to purchase their meal. A photo of the student shows on the screen as their number is entered to assure the identity of the student. You can check your student’s lunch account and make payments at the school website
click on ‘Food Service’, then on‘ Check Lunch Account’, Wordware has made changes this year and you must create your own username and password. If you need help with this, please call the school for assistance.
The system is a pre payment program not a credit program. It is the parent’s responsibility to maintain a positive balance in their child’s account. Emails are sent out daily for balances of $15 or less. Please check your account often to keep a positive balance at all times. If your balance reaches a negative $10, your students will no longer be allowed to charge meals until a deposit is made into your account! 2015-2016 Lennox High School Student Handbook Page 12 Upon request, a refund of account balances will be given if the family is leaving the district or if the graduating student is the last student in the family. Free and reduced price meals are available for families who need assistance. You can pick up a form at any of the school offices or print a form from the school website. If you qualified for free or reduced prices the previous year, you must re apply again each school year BEFORE October 1st or your account will switch back to full price. You can apply at any time during the school year if your income or family size changes. If you qualify for either status, only the main meal is at a free or reduced price. The school offers five food components (milk, fruits, vegetables, grains, meat/meat alternates). Students are allowed to decline 2 of the 5 required food components, but must select at least ½ cup of either a fruit or vegetable.
