All meals served are in compliance with the current USDA regulations under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
All students receive a lesson on cafeteria behavior on the first day of school. Therefore, they are expected to conduct themselves properly at lunch and obey the cafeteria aides. No bottles or cans of soda are permitted. All foods much be eaten in the cafeteria and may not be taken back to the classroom or on the school bus.
PAYING BY CHECK
Parents are strongly encouraged to pay by check. This eliminates any problems for students who forget or lose their money. Prepayment also speeds up the lunch line, giving students more time to eat.
Write your child's name, teacher, school and amount to be applied to his/her account on the envelope. Please make checks payable to Lower Township Cafeteria Fund.

Breakfast is provided every morning to your child at no charge. Included in this meal are milk, 100% juice, cheese stick, fruit, whole grain muffin or whole grain cereal. We hope your child participates in this program.
Studies show that children who eat breakfast do better in school.
Children do forget their lunch money at times. When this happens, they may charge their lunch. This charge is expected to be paid the next school day at the daily rate*. This privilege is not to be used as a credit line. Please do not take advantage of this policy. Children with outstanding charges may not purchase snacks until all charges have been paid. Children owing more than $11.00 will only be permitted to purchase the Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich Lunch until all charges are paid.
