Food Services

The goal of the food service program at the Greencastle-Antrim School District is to encourage students to eat a wide variety of nutritious food in a well-balanced meal.

Cost of meals for the 2017-2018 school year are as follows:

  • Breakfast (Grades K-5): $1.40
  • Lunch (Grades K-5): $2.30
  • Breakfast (Grades 6-12): $1.50<
  • Lunch (Grades 6-12): $2.60
  • Eligible Reduced Breakfast (All Grades): $.30
  • Eligible Reduced Lunch (All Grades): $.40
  • Extra milk price: $.50 per carton

We participate in the Offer Versus Serve program under the above NSLP and SBP. The regulations require us to offer choices to meet the programs requirements. For lunch, the components consist of meat/meat alternate, grain, vegetable, fruit, and milk. Students must select three of the five required food items to qualify as a reimbursable lunch. One of the items selected must be a fruit to meet the reimbursable meal requirement. The lunch must be priced as ac complete lunch and the students may take 3, 4 or all 5 items for the same price. The serving sizes must equal the minimum nutritional standards required for each specific age group.

For breakfast, the components consist of grain, fruit, and milk. The regulations require us to offer four food items within the three required components. This means that some components may meet the requirement for two food items. Students must select three food items, including at least 1/2 cup of fruit to qualify for reimbursable breakfast.

A point-of-sale system allows parents to pre-pay on account for student meals. SchoolCafe is available. The website address for SchoolCafe is www.schoolcafe.com. All previously registered user accounts will remain unchanged. Parents will still use the same login credentials (username and password).

Those families who feel they qualify for a free or reduced lunch/breakfast may apply according to the federal guidelines. Detailed information concerning the program may be obtained by clicking here, or by calling the district food service office at (717) 597-3226 ext. 50505.

Foster children that are under the legal responsibility of a foster care agency or court, are eligible for free meals. Any foster child in the household is eligible for free meals regardless of income and should be included on the household application. They are no longer considered a household of one.
