Huntington Local Schools Food Service Announcement
Dear Huntington Parents/Caregivers and Students,
We are happy to provide delicious, nutritious, and FREE breakfast and lunch every school day for all students! Currently, and thru the end of February, you can refer to your Menu Magnet Calendar to see what is offered each day. Beginning in March lunches will include additional daily entrée choices and also some hot breakfast entrées. New menu items will be added, but the district favorites will remain. Additionally, the new breakfast and lunch menus can be found on the district website. The new menu will include nutritional and allergen information.
Hot breakfast choices will be introduced over the remainder of the school year for all grade levels. We plan to start hot breakfast one day a week (Wednesday). Eventually, as we gauge interest and fine tune our serving system, this may be expanded. Breakfast will continue to be available as students enter in the morning.
Lunch Entrée Choices (Grades K-7)
An additional entrée choice will be offered at lunch to all K-7 Grade Students. We plan to start with a “Jammer Slammer Lunchable” option daily. This will include a Smucker’s Peanut Butter and Jelly Uncrustable, String Cheese, and Cheddar Goldfish Crackers. Students can still choose 2 vegetables, a fruit and milk. Eventually, we hope to expand these options to include things like Chef Salad, Yogurt and Cheese Lunchables and/or Pizza Lunchables. These choices are offered at no additional cost.
Lunch Entrée Choices (Grades 8-12)
Additional entrée choices will be offered at lunch to all students in Grades 8-12. Students can choose one of these entrees for their lunch or choose the menued entrée of the day. For the Grades 8-12 students we plan to start with the schedule below as alternate choices:
Monday- Cheeseburger on Bun
Tuesday- Wedge or Square Pizza
Wednesday- Quesadilla, Chicken or Cheese
Thursday- Breaded Chicken Sandwiches
Friday- Pizzeria Style Pizza
Each day students may choose from the regular menued entrée of the day, the “Jammer Slammer Lunchables” or choose the entrée from the list above. All students can still also choose 2 vegetables, 2 fruits and a milk to complete their meal.
