Wildcat Food Services The Halifax Area School District recognizes that proper nutrition is essential for the social, emotional, physical, and educational needs of our students.   Our goal is to provide a nutritional, well balanced breakfast and lunch for every student.  Within this site you will find information to help you understand what the Wildcat food services will offer you and your child throughout their educational experience. **For the 2014-15 school year the lunches that are served in the High School and Middle Schools will cost $2.45 per meal and the Elementary Schools cost is $2.20 per meal, milk price is $.60. We also serve breakfast for $1.40 per meal and offer kindergarten snack juice and milk options for $.30. Resources include:

 

***On Monday, May 4th 2015, the Halifax Middle and High School kitchen will be taken over by the current renovation project. Breakfast and lunch service will continue in the cafeteria for all students and staff. The menus have been modified to allow for the limited accommodations that we will have for production in the Elementary School kitchen. Nutritional standards will not be compromised during this transition. One main entrée selection and all of the accompaniments plus the full salad bar will be available every day. Most A la Carte items will still be available with the exception of soft pretzels. If you have any questions or concerns about this phase of the project please contact Lori Weber, Food Service Director of the Halifax Area School District. weberl@hasd.us or 717.896.3416 ext. 126. ***

Summer Lunch Program: 

The Halifax Area School District with the assistance of the Food-4-Families Task-Force will open the doors of the Halifax Elementary School, again this year for Summer Luncheons. A nutritious, well balanced lunch will be offered to anyone ages 0 to 101, at no cost.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally funded program that provides free meals to children ages 18 and under during the summer, when National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program meals are not available. SFSP ensures children have the nutrition they need so that they are ready to learn when school starts in the fall. No registration or identification is needed.

With the support of the Food-4-Families Task-Force we are able to secure donations and volunteers to provide the same nutritional meal to the parents, guardians and all community members at no cost.

For a great meal with friends and to enjoy a positive community building event, join us at any or all of our Summer Luncheons. Click here for a summer menu schedule.

"Hot" Food Topics in the News:
On June 27, 2013 the USDA announced the Smart Snacks in School interim regulation. It is effective July 1, 2014.  This regulation establishes nutrition standards for all foods sold to students at school outside of the federally reimbursable meals served through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Side items, snack foods, beverages, and any entrées not served as part of a reimbursable meal will need to comply with the nutrition standards, including calorie, fat, sugar and sodium limits, in order to be sold to students in school.
