Children need healthy meals to learn. As in the past, our school meals will continue to offer students milk, fruits, vegetables, proteins, and grains and must meet strict limits on saturated fat, sodium, and portion size. Regis Catholic Schools participates in the National School Meal Program. Meals are designed to provide 1/3 of the recommended dietary allowances for protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, calcium and calories. In addition, no more than 30% of the calories come from fat and no more than 10% of calories come from saturated fat. Our Food Service staff work hard each day, providing nutritious meals in safe settings for all of our students.
IMPORTANT FOOD SERVICE UPDATE FOR THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR
Regis Catholic Schools is participating in the USDA Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year. This means our school system is providing free meals (breakfast and lunch) to all students!
This program provides additional support and flexibility for our system to continue serving meals to children while maintaining safety measures and managing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though receipt of free meals does not depend on an approved free and reduced-price meal application, we are still distributing and processing them so Regis Catholic Schools families may qualify for P-EBT benefits as well as other school funding.
When your child participates in our healthy and delicious school meals program, it will save your family time and money. At breakfast, all children are offered at least four food items from three food components (grain, fruit, and fluid milk) and at lunch are offered five food components (grain, protein, fruit, vegetable, and fluid milk). For your child’s breakfast to be free, they must take at least three food items, one of which is ½ cup fruit or vegetable. For your child’s lunch meal to be free, they must take at least three different food components, one of which is ½ cup fruit or vegetable. Second meals, a la carte items, milk only, or meals that do not meet the requirements described above will be charged a fee.
