Hot Lunch Program
This year, the Menlo Park City School District is participating in the National School Lunch Program, a federally assisted and monitored program that provides students nutritionally balanced lunches. Participating in this program, the district receives reimbursement from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for each meal they serve. In return, it’s the district’s responsibility to serve lunches that meet Federal requirements, and offer *free or reduced price lunches to eligible children. The district has contracted with Choice Lunch to provide nutritious and delicious lunch choices, Monday through Friday for all children who wish to enjoy a hot lunch!
