Objectives And Standards
The HCPSS Food and Nutrition Service Program serves 3 million school lunches annually. Although new federal regulations for school lunches went into effect this year, the school system began implementing changes long before they became mandatory.
Daily food choices offered to students include multiple entrees, fresh salad bars, trays of fruits and vegetables, whole grain breads and rolls, and flavored and unflavored fat-free or 1% milk. Although students are free to choose the foods they want for lunch, at least one of their choices must be a fruit or vegetable.
To help students make decisions about their lunch choices, a USDA MyPlate Poster* is displayed at the entrance of each serving line. The poster provides a daily list of healthy food choices available in each food category. Read more about the program, objectives and standards.
*In 2008 the USDA Economic Research Service found that school lunches are more nutrient dense than lunches brought from home.
History And Requirements
HCPSS is a participant in the National School Lunch Program. The U.S. government created this program in 1946 to protect the health and well-being of the nation's children. More about the history and requirements...
