Free Breakfast and Lunch 21/22 School Year

SFE is providing posters (see links below) to help students and their parents to better understand the free meals available to students at breakfast and lunch.

  • Breakfast Meals are ‘items’
    • Free Meals consist of any three items in the breakfast menu, but MUST have ½ cup fruit as one of the selections.
  • Lunch Meals are ‘food groups’
    • Free Meals must take 3 or more items from the categories of Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Protein or Dairy (Milk). Must have at least ½ cup of fruit OR vegetable to make it a meal.
    • Any and all Al-A-Carte items do not qualify for meal items or components. Examples are: chips, cookies, ice cream, beverages like Gatorade and any single item from the daily menu WITHOUT the required meal components. Examples: Cheeseburger only, side of vegetables only, breakfast sandwich only, or combinations of daily featured items and al-a-carte items. Example: Cheeseburger with chips & Gatorade. All meals or items that do not fall within the Free Meal category will be put on the students account and the items will need to be paid for.
    • The cafeteria staff will make every effort to guide the students to get the Full Meals.
