School food services programs are implemented in accordance with USDA School Meal Program and Health and Wellness Policy. The menus reflect the Missouri Advanced Eat Smart Guidelines. The USDA's 2013-14 nutrition regulations can be found here.
Starting with the 2014-15 school year, SLPS will operate under a revised meal service policy that will allow all SLPS school children to eat a free breakfast and lunch without having to fill out a Family Application for Meal Benefits. If a student chooses to go back through the line for seconds they must pay: $1.10 (elementary), $1.20 (middle), $1.35 (high), and an additional milk is 40 cents. Each student has a meal account to pay for school lunches. Students can access this account with a personal identification number (PIN), which will remain the same each year. Each student will enter his/her PIN using a keypad when receiving lunch.
