In-Person Learning Meal Services

As students return to school we are able to continue to offer free breakfast and lunch to all student during the school day. Breakfast is prepared in a grab and go bag that includes a breakfast entree, fruit, juice, and a milk.  To ensure proper social distancing, there are multiple breakfast pick-up stations throughout the building for students to pick up and take to their classroom. Lunch service is in the cafeteria; all self-service stations have been removed and are now served by a food service associate. Student do not need to provide and ID number or an ID card to receive a meal creating a contactless checkout. Student's participating in in-person learning are also able to utilize the free curbside meal pick-up on Mondays and Wednesdays to have food at home on virtual learning days.

 

Breakfast
Beginning  the  first  day  of  school,  breakfast  is  offered  to all students at no charge. Our goal is to encourage students to start their day with a nutritious breakfast.  Studies have also shown that in schools where breakfast is served, students are better prepared for learning.  They are more enthused to start class, show improved behavior, experience reduced visits to the nurse and show a general increase in composite math and reading percentile scores. The "grab n go" meal consists of an array of yogurts and milks, fruit and juice, cereal and bagels along with an assortment of hot entrees. Please encourage your children to participate.

 

Lunch
Student Approved favorites can be found throughout our menus. We have many new menu items planned for next year. We emphasize whole grains, lean meat and meat alternatives, fresh fruits and vegetables, and low fat milk. We are looking forward to incorporating produce from the Pattonville Youth Garden. Vegetarian options will be added regularly.

 

No fuss, no gimmicks, just Simply Good food. That’s what our Simply Good program is all about! Throughout the year, students will have the opportunity to learn more about the food they eat and about new foods through fun activities in the café. Simply Good events and programs focus on making good food choices and the great benefits and enjoyment of delicious, simple ingredients. Different themes and events are featured throughout the school year, such as taste testings, Chef2School Days, and Pattonville Garden items incorporated into our dishes.

 

Price
The Federal Government reimbursable breakfast and lunch is offered at all 9 school locations.  Breakfast is offered at no charge and lunch is $2.65 in elementary cafeterias and $2.85 in secondary schools.  Checks and cash are accepted at all school locations.   Credit cards are accepted with a service fee through MySchoolBucks.com.  Follow the instructions for "new user. and if you experience any problems, please call the food service office at (314) 213-8054.

 

Government regulations separate students into three categories for reimbursements based on family income. At Pattonville, we do not charge students in the free or reduced category.  Income information is treated confidentially and applications are available above through the schools' office.

 

Nutrition
Our meals are planned to accommodate the average nutritional needs of students based on current USDA regulations and guidelines.  The food group components offered at breakfast are targeted to meet the Recommended Daily Allowance of nutrients (RDA) while the lunches meet 1/3 the RDA.  Efforts have been successful in reducing salt, sugar and fat in the Pattonville diet through the promotion of balance, moderation and variety.  Our "offer verses serve" system allows students to choose as few as three or as many as five of the offered food group components while still qualifying for the same student discount price and allowing for less waste.
