The Spring-Ford Nutrition Services Department understands that some families are facing financial difficulties. Parents/guardians are strongly encouraged to submit free/reduced application forms annually as well as any time during the year when their household information or income change.

For those that ended last school year (June 2016) as Free or Reduced status, please remember, although there is a 30 day carryover from last school year, you must re-apply every year. The year runs from July 1, 2016-June 30, 2017. The carryover period from the prior year extends until October 13, 2016.

  • Summer Meal Programs help close the nutrition gap children face when schools let out for summer — when children no longer receive school meals they relied on throughout the school year. Please use this information about the availability and location of free meals for students over the summer months through the Summer Food Service Program.

    Families can use any of the following methods to locate sites that serve free meals to children during the summer:

    -Call 1.866.348.6479 (English) or 1.877.842.6273 (Spanish)

    -Text “FOOD” for English or “COMIDA” for Spanish to 877-877 to find a meal site near you during the summer months.

    -Visit the website: www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks
    (note, this replaces the whyhunger.org website)

IMPORTANT NOTE: Although you can transfer funds into your student(s) account and receive verification almost immediately that the transaction occurred and was successful, please be aware that it may take up to 2 (two) business days for the funds to actually transfer to the student(s) account.



Each lunch includes a minimum of the following:
Elementary Level: 2 oz protein, 3/4 cup vegetable, 1/2 cup fruit, servings of grain/bread, & 8 oz milk.

Secondary Level: 2 oz protein, 1 cup vegetable, 1 cup fruit, servings of grain/bread, & 8 oz milk.

Offer Vs. Serve: Students are offered all five menu components (protein, vegetable, fruit, grain/bread, milk) daily for lunch. Of the five items offered, each student must select three items.


Due to USDA regulations effective July 1, 2012 all students in grades 1-12 must select a fruit or vegetable in addition to or as one of the three items. USDA has implemented these changes to encourage students to eat more fruits and vegetables. If students do not choose a fruit or vegetable to complete their lunch, they will be charged a la carte pricing.

For example, instead of $2.95 for a complete Elementary lunch, if the student only wanted the entree and a water, then they would be charged the Elementary Entree a la carte price of $2.80, and the Elementary a la carte price of .50 for a small bottled water, for a total of $3.30. The full meal is a better value and is priced as such to encourage it. The price list for a la carte pricing can be found in the "Snack Prices" section.

  • Extra Entrée: Extra entrees may be purchased after the purchase of a full lunch for $1.80 at the Elementary Level (grades 1-4) and $2.30 at the Upper Levels (grades 5-12).
  • Beverages: Milk is included with all full lunches. Milk choices are: 1% White Milk, Skim White Milk, skim chocolate Milk, & Skim Strawberry Milk.
  • Snack Permission - If the parent does NOT want the student to use their POS account for snacks, they need to complete a "Snack Limitation Form" located under the "Important Forms" section on the right hand side of this web page. This form needs to be filled out on a yearly basis.

Payments
The Spring-Ford Area School District cafeterias use a computer software point-of-sale (POS) system to track lunches and cafeteria inventory. The student buys their lunch, milk or snack by keying their 6-digit student ID into a key pad. The cafeteria staff verify the student's name and the student's purchase is deducted from the money you have submitted to their account. When the account is almost empty, the student's account is flagged and a "low balance" email is sent to the primary guardian.
  • Parents can sign up to pay for lunch electronically using e~Funds for Schools
  • Instead of paying electronically, parents can send in checks or cash which is credited to the student's account. Please make checks payable to Spring-Ford Cafeteria. One full lunch (grades 1-4) costs $2.95, and a full lunch at the upper grades (grades 5th-12th) is $3.15. You may send in a check for any amount and at any time. Please put lunch checks in an envelope marked with the student's and teacher's names.
