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.
***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. email@example.com or 717.896.3416

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.
