Healthy Morning Snack Packs at Participating Elementary Schools
Since several elementary school's start times are later this year, many students are choosing to eat breakfast at home, but are ready for a snack by the time school starts.
Food and Nutrition Services is excited to offer a new healthy Morning Snack Pack program at participating elementary schools for students who need something a little extra to hold them over until lunch.
Healthy Morning Snack Packs are now available for students when they arrive on campus. Students can enjoy the morning snack before school starts or, if their teacher permits**, they can save it for snack time later in the day. **Varies by school. Please check with your child's school for more information.
Students may select a more traditional breakfast or the Morning Snack Pack for only $1.25 at participating schools. At those schools that offer the complimentary breakfast, if the students do not select the breakfast, there will be no charge for the snack pack. Students that qualify for meal benefits, may obtain a breakfast or a Morning Snack Pack at their established meal price. If a student chooses to select a breakfast and a snack pack, the price of the snack pack is $1.50 for all students.
Three different versions of the Morning Snack Pack are available. The Graham Snack Pack is available on Mondays and Wednesdays, the Cheese Cracker Snack Pack is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the lowfat Muffin Snack Pack is available on Fridays. All snack packs include a choice of milk.
For more information on the Morning Snack Pack program, please contact your child's school’s Food and Nutrition Services Manager.
