School Breakfast / Lunch Program

Breakfast / Lunch Policy

The school breakfast/lunch program serves both breakfast and a noon meal. Students are encouraged to participate in the school lunch program. Students are encouraged to prepay for twenty or more meals; however, they will be allowed to purchase meals on a daily basis. Families will not be allowed to accumulate more than 10 charged meals per child, after which the student will be denied meals.

Students bringing a lunch to school must eat in the lunchroom. Students may not leave the school grounds during the lunch period. Students, who live in Selby, with written permission from their parents/guardian and approval from the school, may be granted an exception to this rule.

If students are unable to eat certain foods on the menu due to allergies or illness, a doctor's written statement/orders are required before school lunch provisions are made.

Free and Reduced Meals

The Selby Area School offers healthy meals every day that it is open. Children from families whose income is at or below the standards set by the Federal Government are eligible for free meals or reduced meals at $0.40 per meal for lunch.

To apply for free or reduced-price meals, use the Free and Reduced Price School Meals Application found on the USDA Food and Nutrition Website.  Applications can also be picked up at the business office.  We encourage you to apply.  Please contact the business office if you have any questions.

If you receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, all of your children who attend school automatically qualify for free school meals. Participation in other federal assistance programs, including Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) also provides automatic eligibility. Please contact the school to determine if you need to fill out an application.

Summer School Meal Programs Nationwide

The Selby Area School District does not offer a Summer Meal Program, however, the USDA welcomes anyone to attend participating sites for a free school lunch.

USDA works closely with states to ensure that children who receive free or reduced-price school meals can get the nutrition they need when schools are closed – whether during summer break or unexpected closures during the school year. Through USDA's summer meal programs, approved sites in communities across the country can serve meals to kids up to age 18 at no cost.

Families seeking food assistance for their children can also contact The USDA National Hunger Hotline, operated by Hunger Free America. The hotline can be reached Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. ET. at 1-866-3-HUNGRY (1-866-348-6479) (for English) or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (1-877-842-6273) (for Spanish).

Families can use this tool to find directions to nearby meal sites, as well as their hours of operation and contact information. Click this link for more information.
