FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hanover School District 28 is participating in a Universal Breakfast and Lunch Program for the current school year 2022-2023. If your children attend any of the schools listed, breakfast/lunch will be available to them at no charge. All students enrolled at this school may participate in the breakfast/lunch program at no charge to them.

Studies have shown that children who are not hungry perform better in school. By providing breakfast/lunch to all children at no charge, we are hoping to create a better learning environment for our students.

The school breakfast and lunch that we serve follows U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines for healthy school meals. The Universal Meals Program cannot succeed without your support; please encourage your children to participate in school meal programs.

All meals will be served to all students at no charge regardless of the eligibility status.

The Hanover School District works really hard at meeting the new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Our menus are audited by the CDE Office of School Nutrition to ensure that they meet the criteria and standards that the USDA has set for growing students.

Our district school meals offer students’ milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Since the School Year 2012-2013, school lunches have met the additional standards requiring:

* Age-appropriate calorie limits
* Larger servings of vegetables and fruits
* A wider variety of vegetables,
including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
* Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
* More whole grain
* And less sodium

FEEDING OUR FUTURE

Here at Hanover School District we’re always working to offer students healthier and tastier choices and we strive to create menus that appeal to kids offering many breakfast options, foods that they are familiar with, but also we pride ourselves on offering from “Scratch Cooking” on at least half of our weeks lunch menu, and always a Fresh Salad Bar with many fresh fruit and vegetable options to choose from.

Our Nutrition Services Department recognizes that school meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families like yourself, but we also want you as parents to know that we truly appreciate you supporting our program and encouraging your student to try new foods.

A healthy diet is a diet that helps maintain or improve overall health.

We take pride in serving wholesome, vitamin-rich meals each and every day. Meals that support the growth and development of our students’ bodies and minds.
