What is the National School Lunch Program?

Generally, public or nonprofit private schools of high school grade or under and public or nonprofit private residential child care institutions may participate in the school lunch program. School districts and independent schools that choose to take part in the lunch program get cash subsidies and donated commodities from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for each meal they serve. In return, they must serve lunches that meet Federal requirements, and they must offer free or reduced price lunches to eligible children. School food authorities can also be reimbursed for snacks served to children through age 18 in after school educational or enrichment programs.

 
How does the National School Lunch Program work?
 

The National School Lunch Program is a federally assisted meal program operating in over 101,000 public and non-profit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to more than 30 million children each school day. In 1998, Congress expanded the National School Lunch Program to include reimbursement for snacks served to children in after school educational and enrichment programs to include children through 18 years of age.

The Food and Nutrition Service administers the program at the Federal level. At the State level, the National School Lunch Program is usually administered by State education agencies, which operate the program through agreements with school food authorities.

 

What are the nutritional requirements for school lunches?

School lunches must meet the applicable recommendations of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommend that no more than 30 percent of an individual's calories come from fat, and less than 10 percent from saturated fat. Regulations also establish a standard for school lunches to provide one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances of protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, calcium, and calories.

School lunches must meet Federal nutrition requirements, but decisions about what specific foods to serve and how they are prepared are made by local school food authorities.

Prepayment
Prepayment incentive of $2.00 for every $20.00 prepaid on account.  We encourage prepayment to enable quicker service.

Charge Policy

The term "charge" means that your child has made a purchase but does not have enough money to cover the cost of the purchase.  He (she) has "charged" the sum that is over his (her) balance. 

Charge Policy- Students are allowed to charge up to five meals. Then a Courtesy Meal will be provided while payment arrangements are made with Cafeteria Manager. A Courtesy Meal will consist of toast and juice for breakfast and a sandwich and juice for lunch.

You can view your student's account information and receive email reminders for free using MyPaymentPlus.  MyPaymentsPlus is available at all times to make a payment using a credit card, debit card, or bank account.  Please remember that payments online may take up to 24 hours to post to your student's account at school.

 

Free and Reduced Meal Program

Free and Reduced Meal applications are available at your school office, school cafeteria, or ECISD Central Office.  You may also apply online by clicking here.  If you qualify for Free or Reduced Price lunch, you also qualify for breakfast.

 
All families on the Free and Reduced Meal Program must submit a new application each school year.  Prior year status approvals for Free and Reduced Meals will expire as soon as the new application is processed or after 30 day grace period, which is October 8, 2017.
 
Purchasing Limits
Please phone your Cafeteria Manager to set or modify limits on your child's lunch account.
 
Checks
We accept checks for the amount of payment only. Refunds greater than $5 must process through CN Office.
 
Reimbursable Meals
For reimbursable breakfast- select 3 to 4 components: 1 serving of bread, 1 serving fruit or fruit juice and a choice from a variety of milk offered.  For reimbursable lunch- select 3 to 5 components: 1 serving of meat/meat alternate, 1 serving of bread, 1 serving of different vegetables or fruits or both, and a choice from a variety of milk offered.  At least one serving of vegetable or fruit must be selected for a reimbursable lunch.  A-la-carte prices will be charged if less than 3 components or if additional components are selected.  Some menu items may contain more than one meal component.  Second meals do not receive federal assistance and are not priced as a reimbursable meal.  Adults, visitors, and second meals are priced slightly more because federal reimbursement and commodities are not received for these meals.
