ENCOURAGING A LIFETIME OF HEALTHY HABITS

Children need healthy meals to actively learn. The Boyle County Schools Food Services Department serves more than 500,000 healthy meals annually through its full-service breakfast and lunch programs. Each of the District’s five schools has a fully equipped kitchen that prepares nutritious meals on-site. The Food Services Department is self-supporting, participating in the federally funded National School Breakfast and Lunch Programs administered by the USDA.

 

Breakfast + Lunch FREE for Enrolled Students in 21-22

Boyle County Schools will be participating in the Seamless Summer Option of the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program.  

As part of this program, Boyle County High School, Boyle County Middle School, Woodlawn Elementary School, Junction City Elementary School and Perryville Elementary School will offer healthy meals every school day at no cost to all enrolled students for the 2021-2022 school year.  

Students will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a household application.

$2.25 Adult Breakfast

Free + Reduced Price Meals Application

Families with students enrolled at Woodlawn Elementary, Boyle County Middle School and Boyle County High School may elect to apply for free or reduced meals if they meet the federal income guidelines. Please fill out the online form (Spanish version) or the paper form (must be returned to the Food Services Office by mail or in-person).

 

Community Eligibility Provision

Junction City Elementary and Perryville Elementary schools offer breakfasts and lunches to all students at no cost through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) of the National School Lunch Program. The CEP is a provision that eliminates the need for schools in low-income areas to collect applications for free and reduced-price meals. School participation in CEP requires all parents and guardians with children attending JCES and PES to complete a Household and Income Form (HIF). Please print out the form, fill it out, and return it to your child's school. Hard copies also will be available at the schools' Back to School Night.

 

Digital Lunch Accounts

MySchoolBucks allows students to purchase second meals and a la carte items with a PIN number. Parents may view their child’s food services account and add additional funds online when needed. Students may also add money to their pre-paid account by cash or check. Create or sign in to your MySchoolBucks account now. MySchoolBucks will charge a transaction fee of $2.75 each time funds are loaded onto your child(ren)’s meals account(s). 

 

School Menus

Meals are prepared following standards set forth by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which encourages children to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, while limiting sodium and unhealthy fats.

IMPORTANT SUPPLY CHAIN NOTICE: Please note that food and supply chain problems and shortages are occurring nationwide.  Our district is being impacted by these supply chain issues weekly.  We are making every effort to follow our planned menu; however, there will be occasions where this is not possible.  We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we continue to navigate challenges presented by the COVID-19 emergency. 

 

Breakfast Program

A balanced breakfast is proven to help kids pay better attention in class and improve memory. Every day, Boyle County Schools serve nutritional breakfasts that meet USDA guidelines, including fruits, whole grains, and low-fat or fat-free milk.

 

Smart Snacks

Boyle County Schools follow USDA Smart Snack nutritional guidelines for healthy food and beverages sold to children during the school day. The program encourages students to make healthier snack choices that give them the nutrition they need to grow and learn.

 

Summer Food Service Program

During the months of June and July, the Boyle County Summer Food Service Program provides free breakfasts and lunches to all children ages 18 years old and under. Meals are served Monday through Friday, at various locations throughout Boyle County. Adults may purchase breakfast for $1.75 and lunch for $3.35. 

 

*Your children may qualify for free or reduced priced meals. If your child qualifies for free or reduced lunch, he or she may also qualify for low-cost health insurance or reduced instructional, textbook, parking, testing and college application fees. By allowing Nutrition Services to share your status information, you may be able to take advantage of additional programs.
