District Wellness Report 2017
Feeding Children is our Business
School lunches are planned to provide
1/3 of the recommended dietary allowances for school-age
children. All Harrison County students are encouraged to select a
complete lunch; however, under the offer vs. serve
regulation they are allowed to select three, four or five items.
Menus are planned to include a variety of choices, and changes
have been made in food specifications and preparation to lower
sodium, fat and sugar in school meals.
School Breakfast...The first Step to
Children who are hungry find it hard to
stay alert and participate in their classroom experiences. The
Harrison County Schools Breakfast Program helps close the
readiness gap with nutritious food in a
cost-effective manner before classes begin. Breakfast is offered
in all Harrison County Schools; check with your school's
cafeteria manager for information needed.
Offer vs. Serve is implemented in
offer vs. serve? This is a serving style that allows students to choose from a
selection of foods offered by their schools cafeteria rather than being forced
to take all items. The goal of offer vs. serve is to offer students a choice in
what they eat, and to reduce waste. Students are required to select at
least three components to make a creditable meal, and at least 1 of those
components must be a fruit or vegetable. Students are given at least 2
options for each component every day, barring any unexpected shortages or
demands for a certain item.
Free or Reduced Priced Meal Benefits
To apply for free or reduced priced meal
benefits, complete a family application, which is available in
your school's office. If your student qualifies for free or
reduced price lunch, they also qualify for free or reduced price
breakfast. For additional information contact
Director of Food Service, 234-7110.
