Locust Valley Lunch Program
**We have a new website for student meal pre-payment at www.myschoolbucks.com
Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program
The Locust Valley Central School District participates in the National School Lunch Program, a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritionally balanced, low cost or free meals to children each school day. All students receive an application at the beginning of the school year. Applications can be turned in anytime; there is no deadline.
The application for this program and a letter to parents is available to the left. Any questions should be directed to the Office of School Lunch at 516 277-5530.
Look what is New on the Menu
Locust Valley School meals already meet or exceed many of the new requirements, so students will notice only small changes on the menus.
- Students have to choose at least a ½ cup of a fruit or a vegetable with lunch.
- The menus are separated by grade group: Kindergarten - 5th grade, 6th - 8th grade and 9th - 12th grade.
- The menus offer a rainbow of colors of fruits and vegetables with more choices available to students.
- Majority of grains on the menu are whole grain.
- We continue to offer only fat-free (White and Chocolate) and 1% low-fat milk.
- No foods contain trans- fat and saturated fat is limited to less than 10% of calories.
- Menu items contain less sodium.
- All cafeteria serving lines have a poster showing the food groups by color (the same as on ChooseMyPlate) and all food items are labeled by food group on the serving line. The poster explains to the students which food groups can make a lunch and that a fruit or vegetable must be included with lunch.
We will continue to introduce new menu items throughout the school year.
