Meal Charging Policy
The AFUHSD Food Service Department understands that sometimes a student's meal account will run low. To ensure that all students are being treated equally as well as to ensure that our department is being fiscally responsible with our limited resources, we want to make our No Meal Charge Policy known to all parents.
To ensure students receive the nutrition they need to stay focused during the school day, the AFUHSD Food Service Department provides student meals that are nutritious, cost effective and delicious. AFUHSD food service professionals are passionate about ensuring students have access to healthy school meals every day, however, in the event a student has no money for breakfast or lunch the following policy is in place.
Students will not be permitted to purchase or charge a reimbursable meal and/or a la carte items with insufficient funds. If a student does not have money for breakfast or lunch, in lieu of charging, a courtesty meal will be provided. AFUHSD students can receive three courtesty meals. A Breakfast courtesy meal will consist of: 1 breakfast entree, 1 carton of 100% fruit juice and 1 carton of 1% white milk. A Lunch courtesty meal will consist of: 1 lunch entree, 1 pieces of fresh fruit and 1 carton of 1% white milk. Students who receive a courtesty meal will not be permitted to purchase any a la carte items.
After two days of receiving a courtesty meal, a food service professional will communicate directly with the student and/or parent via in-person, phone call, text, e-mail or letter regarding the student's meal account.
The AFUHSD shall abide by the program regulation 7 CFR 245.5 by providing in writing to parents and guardians of all students who attend the district's schools, of the District's policy regarding the No Meal Charge, and informaiton about applying for free or reduced-priced meals.
The AFUHSD shall provide the written No Meal Charge Polcy to all school staff responsible for policy enforcement, including school food service professionals, staff involved in notifying families of low or negative balances and stuaff involved in enforcing any or all aspects of the No Meal Charge policy. Other staff members who may assist student and families in need should also be informed of the policy.
The District will make reasonable efforts to work with families who have difficulties maintaining a positive meal account. Such efforts may include providing a Meal Benefit Application, payment plan and/or student worker opportunities.
