What’s New with School Lunch
- The new nutrition guidelines for school meals are providing new standards for our Anchor Bay Food Service staff to build on the work we are already doing to provide more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthier entrees in our school cafeterias.
- As Anchor Bay students return to school this fall, they will find:
- larger servings of vegetables and fruits offerings and must take at least one serving
- Wider variety of vegetables, including dark green, red/orange and legumes
- More whole grains
- 1% milk or flavored fat free
2012-2013 Meals Prices
The new prices are a result of Section 205 of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. This new federal law mandates school districts across America to increase "paid" lunch prices to ensure the overall rate is comparable with federal reimbursement rates. For Anchor Bay Schools this Act results in a dime increase for paid lunches at all schools for the 2012-2013 school year.
- Breakfast $1.25
- Reduced Breakfast $.30
- Elementary Lunch $2.10
- Middle School and High School $2.35
- Reduced Lunch $.40
- School Milk 1/2 pint $0.40

How Does My Middle School or High School Student Get Their Pin NumberOn the first day that students have lunch, the 3rd hour teacher will have a label with your student’s name and pin number. The teacher will distribute the label by name to each student. Students are reminded to memorize their pin number and keep it confidential. Each student will use their pin number at the checkout in the cafeteria.
