Loyalsock Township School District school cafeterias will continue to meet 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. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school breakfast and lunch!

School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Continuing in School Year 2023-2024, school meals will meet USDA meal standards requiring:

  • Age-appropriate calorie limits and Smart Snacks in Schools Guidelines for all foods sold to students during school hours
  • A large selection of fresh, canned and frozen whole fruit and a wide variety of vegetables
  • Fat-free or 1% milk
  • Most grains served will be at least 51% whole grains
  • Less sodium
  • Students must select at least one fruit or veggie to make a complete breakfast and/or lunch

We’re always working to offer Loyalsock Township School District students healthier and tastier choices. We will continue our partnership with local farms and continue to offer and support nutrition and physical activity programs that align with our district Wellness Policy.

School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! We encourage families to register at MySchoolBucks to track student account balances, view student transaction histories and to deposit funds on student cafeteria accounts.

Don’t forget, we serve breakfast daily at all schools, too!

Thank you for your continued support of our Food and Nutrition Services Department. It is our pleasure to serve you and the students of our school community! If you have questions about our meal program, please do not hesitate to contact our Food and Nutrition Services Department at any time during the school year.

If you have any question please email Beth Hufnagel, Food Service Director, or call (570) 323-3211.
