We accept applications for free or reduced priced meals at any time during the school year. We encourage potential applicants to take advantage of this USDA program as an important support to a child's success in the classroom. Complete your online application now; it's simple and confidential.

Link to Nutrition

The Student Nutrition Services (SNS) department for KPBSD is pleased to prepare and serve breakfast and lunch offerings that are both appealing and nutritious for growing minds and bodies.

KPBSD-SNS is a proud sponsor of USDA-United States Department of Agriculture-breakfast and lunch programs. As a sponsor that receives USDA financial support, we are responsible for supporting USDA nutrition requirements and guidelines.

Our menu development and meal offerings are built with these guidelines as a base.

These guidelines include measurements of calories, nutrients, meal patterns and menu entrees and menu items.The guidelines vary according to student age. Other influences on KPBSD menu offerings include:

  • Student Preference
  • KPBSD Wellness Policy
  • The availability of USDA commodity provisions
  • Current pricing of distributor foods supplies
  • Labor expense associated with preparation of menued foods
  • Seasonal availability of fresh fruits and vegetables also influence menu offerings.
  • SNS responsibility to limit meal program expenses to the revenue received from federal reimbursements and cash sales of meals and ALA Carte services.

USDA nutrient guidelines include target measurements of calories, iron, calcium, vitamin A, and Vitamin C, total fat, protein, and saturated fat.

Our KPBSD meal programs operate under USDA "Offer vs Serve" guidelines.

The student can select all the menued foods OFFERED on a daily menu. The student has the option to SELECT only the entree and one other item to qualify as an appropriate complete meal.

For students interested in consuming a level of calories beyond the offered meal items, most KPBSD meal programs make Ala Carte items available for sale.
