National School Lunch Program

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program created to offer healthy, balanced meals to students. Participating school districts will only receive a reimbursement from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the qualifying meals served.  In complete meals are not reimbursable and are considered a la carte meals.  

What is included in a qualifying lunch?

A qualifying lunch includes the following items.  Students who are eligible for Free/Reduced price meals must have all components for a qualifying meal in order for the meal to be provided at no charge.

A qualifying lunch includes:

  1. Meat or Meat Alternative
  2. Grains / Bread
  3. Vegetables
  4. Fruit
  5. Fat-Free or 1% Milk

Students must take 3-5 of the components or servings listed above and must include at least ½ cup fruit or vegetable to qualify as a Meal Deal.

Qualifying Meal vs. A La Carte

If your student receives a complete qualifying meal he/she will not be charged for the meal.  Students who select additional items or a meal that does not contain the components necessary to qualify as a meal will be charged "a la carte" or per item.
