Don't forget that if you qualify for free or reduced price lunches, you also qualify for
free breakfast/nutrition break daily!!
Nutrition Break is offered daily K-5 from 7:45-8:05 in the cafeteria. We do not serve it on late start days.

 
What’s new for 2014-2015?

School meals offer students low fat white and flavored milk; a wide variety of fruits and vegetables; proteins and whole grains; and meet strict limits on saturated fat, sodium and portion size. All schools at Mount Horeb offer a Salad Bar daily with a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables to encourage students to take larger portions of fresh produce. Students must take at least ½ cup of fruits and/or vegetables to qualify for a reimbursable lunch. Water and Lactaid is available in the cafeterias in place of milk but please encourage your student to bring a water bottle to fill at lunch time if they would prefer to drink water with lunch.

 

Students may receive an alternative at school lunch if they do not care for the main entrée. We offer a string cheese & yogurt or ham & cheese daily in place of the main item. Grades 6-12 only have the option of a PBJ Uncrustable,also.

 
Each menu will feature a fruit and vegetable of the month with nutritional information and tips. The fruit and vegetable will be local when possible and will be served in the cafeterias throughout the month.

We’re always working to offer students healthier and tastier choices.  All student's will be offered a Salad Bar daily which will feature Romaine Mix, Legumes, and a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. We will also be partnering with Vermont Valley Community Farm again this year to provide students with an abundance of fresh, local fruits and vegetables through the fall. As always, we make every effort to purchase locally when possible throughout the school year. Please follow us on Facebook or check out our Farm To School Website if you would like to follow what we are doing in our efforts to provide more local fruits and vegetables to our students.

We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria this fall.  To get the facts about school meals visit Tray Talk.
