School Food Services
The Triad District school meal services utilize a computerized point of sale cafeteria system for both breakfast and lunch meal services in all attendance centers. The system has established every student with an account in the cafeteria that can be accessed by using a barcode based on their Triad student ID. Students are provided with a Photo ID card with this barcode at the start of each school year.
Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010
Enforced by the federal government and made effective July 1, the changes are part of a healthy school lunch initiative put forth in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new guidelines establish calorie and sodium minimums and maximums for meals, require schools to offer a wider selection of fruits and vegetables, mandate that all milk be 1 percent or nonfat and require the use of whole grain. Much more information can be found a http://www.choosemyplate.gov/
Healthy eating is an important part of the academic equation. Sodexo, the independent food service contractor that provides meals to all our schools, believes that they “have the responsibility to nourish” our students. All schools offer lunch service, and lunch menus can be viewed online, at [ www.sodexoeducation.com ].
