School Nutrition Program

Hello Parents and Guardians:

Welcome back to another great year of delicious healthy and wholesome school lunch and breakfast meals!  Our school nutrition program is designed to encourage our students to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk and lean proteins.  These items are incorporated into all our student friendly menus.

We are offering healthy selections daily for your child’s enjoyment.  Included with their meal will be a fruit or veggie bar that includes many choices of fresh fruits, vegetables, and salads on a “farm to school”rotating schedule.  We’re always working to offer Pembroke students’ healthier and tastier choices.  We currently partner with LaValley Farms, Gould Hill Orchards, and Saunders Fruits and Produce in order to bring farm fresh local products to your child’s tray.

All school meals must be pre-paid.  You can access your child’s account at www.myschoolbucks.com with their student ID# and sign up for an email reminder of when payment is due.  You can then pay thru the website or send a check with your child’s name on the memo section,made payable to:  The Pembroke Lunch Program, in any increment, based on your child’s participation.  This amount will be put into your child’s account and will be withdrawn on an as-used basis.

Children that were receiving free or reduced lunches last school year still qualify, for those meals, until September 29, 2017.  If you have a child entering the district this year and their sibling received free or reduced lunch notify Donna Roy@donnaroy@sau53.org immediately so  that the incoming student will also have a 30 day grace period for free or reduced meals.

I look forward to serving your child throughout the school year.  If you have any questions I can be reached at 485-3042

Sincerely,
Donna Roy, SNS
