Healthy Meals

Southmoreland Food Service offers healthy meals daily to its students, following USDA guidelines for recommended levels of fat, saturated fat, calories, grains, protein, fruits and vegetables.

Students at Southmoreland Primary Center are offered at least ¾ c. of vegetables, ½ c. of fruit, and low-fat or non-fact milk without high fructose corn syrup and added BGH every day. At least 50% of our bread items served are made from whole grains, including pizza crust. We also offer a variety of fruits and vegetables throughout the monthly menu to introduce students to more types of these foods.


Free & Reduced Meals

  • There are three ways to obtain for free or reduced meals:
  • Direct Certification – if you qualify, you will receive a letter from school on the first day notifying you that your household is already are approved.
  • Online – through the website, click on the link to apply online.
  • Paper Application – sent home the first day of school

Free & Reduced Meals

If your child has a sibling in another grade who was free or reduced last year – please let us know. It is sometimes difficult to match siblings. We can apply the siblings’ meal status to your Kindergarten student for the first 30 days of school.


Paying for Meals

If you do not qualify for meal benefits, paid meals cost $1.00 for breakfast and $2.00 for lunch.

We utilize a computerized system to track your child’s daily meal purchases. It tracks all payments and purchases.

Transactions are tracked by your child’s Student ID number (or PIN). Your child’s PIN number to purchase meals is the same number as their Student ID.


Paying for Meals

We recommend that parents make deposits into the computerized system rather then sending cash daily with the student. It helps prevent loss or theft of money and speeds up the lunch lines.

To make payments, please send cash

or check (recommended) in an envelope with your

child’s name and account number

Written on the envelope.

Please also make checks payable to:Southmoreland Cafeteria Fund


Paying for Meals

The other method for paying for meals in online using a debit or credit card. You can access the link through the Southmoreland website (go through Food Service) or type this website into your browser:

Using your child’s Student ID Number, you can create an account for your child. Through this account, you can make deposits, receive low balance emails or simply view daily transactions.


Negative Balances

We understand from time to time you may forget to send money with your child.

We do not deny students without money a meal, however, the computerized system does track “charges” and you will need to pay for any/all negative balances soon after they occur.

We periodically send notices for negative balances and if the balances become too high, we may offer the student an alternative entrée. Parents would receive a notice before this happens.


Special/Diets Allergies

There are specific USDA regulations that state how schools are permitted to respond to a student with allergies.

If your child has a condition which is considered a “disability”, schools can make modifications to the meal menu. This requires a form filled out by a physician and must state the substitutions to be made. Forms are available here today for you to take should you have this situation. Only in the case of a disability do we modify a menu.


Special/Diets Allergies

For milk allergies and/or intolerances, parents may specify a substitution for milk. We ARE NOT permitted to substitute water or juice for milk UNLESS a physician specifies the condition as a disability.

However, the parent can specify a lactose-free milk substitute or soy milk by completing our Milk Substitution form.


School Breakfast

We highly recommend in addition to participating in lunch that parents encourage their child(ren) to eat breakfast at school.

Studies show that children are better learners after consuming a healthy breakfast. Breakfast at Southmoreland Primary Center only costs $1.00 for paid students, $.30 for reduced students and free students are no charge.


School Breakfast

Please be aware, even if you do not anticipate that your child is eating breakfast, sometimes they will enter the breakfast line and eat with their friends. Breakfast charges will accumulate on the computerized lunch account if the child does not have money when eating.
