Food Service Regulations

Parents are invited and encouraged to eat lunch with their children. We ask that you notify the teacher in advance when you plan to eat at school. The cost of an adult lunch is $3.50 and may be paid in the cafeteria at the time the parent goes through the food line.

A basic meal provides the following items:

1 breakfast entree (includes the required protein and grain servings)
1-2 servings of fruit (one may be 100% fruit juice)
1 low-fat milk

1 lunch entree (includes the required protein and 100% whole grain servings)
1-2 servings of fruit
1-2 servings of vegetables
1 low-fat milk

Microwaves are not available for student or parent use. Parents are NOT to bring food from "fast food" restaurants into the cafeteria.

Procedure for Student Lunch/Meal Accounts
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) requires school food authorities to establish written administrative guidelines and procedures for meal charges. Greenwood School Corporation will adhere to the following meal charge procedure.

  • All cafeteria purchases are to be prepaid before meal service begins checks or cash can be sent with your child or you may pay online at
  • An elementary student may charge up to 2 meals maximum (one charge per meal) Middle School students can charge one meal as long as they establish and maintain a good credit history of making payments on their food service accounts. The High School allows no charges. Schools will provide an alternative meal of peanut butter or cheese sandwich with a milk to a student until the required payment for that meal is paid.
  • Reduced and paid students will not be denied a meal if they have money in hand for a meal that day.
  • A student who has charged a meal may not charge or purchase "a la carte" item(s), including extra main entrees or make snack purchases.
  • If a student repeatedly comes to school with no lunch and no money, food service employees must report this to the building principal as this may be a sign of abuse or neglect and the proper authorities should be contacted.
  • The food service manager or other school personnel will coordinate communications with the parent(s)/guardian(s) to resolve the matter of unpaid charges.
  • The food service manager will send home letters each week to parents of students who carry negative balances of $2.00 and above.
  • All accounts must be settled at the end of school. Letters will be sent home approximately 10 days before the last week of school to students who have any negative balances. Negative balances of more than $5.00 not paid in full 5 days prior to the end of school will force the Corporation to take action to collect unpaid funds by means of collection agencies, small claims court, or any other legal method deemed necessary by the Corporation.
  • Students who graduate or withdraw from the corporation and have $5.00 or more left in their lunch/meal food service account will be given the option to transfer the funds to another student or to receive a refund. If no response is received within 30 days the student’s lunch/meal account will close and the funds will no longer be available. Unclaimed remaining balances will be transferred to the school lunch fund.
