HCCS Food Service is bringing back, a la carte beginning Monday, November 7th!

What is it? - A la Carte is where Middle School Students (we define this as grades 5-8), can purchase additional snack items with their lunch if they so choose. The additional snack items are all "Smart Snack Compliant," meaning they meet specific nutrition requirements set forth by the DPI.

The A La Carte Items we will sell/make available for the students are the following:

  • Fruit - $0.50
  • Crackers (Cheez-Its, Goldfish Crackers, Bug Bites, etc.) - $0.60
  • Cereal Bowls, Cereal Bars, and Other Snacks (Chewy Granola Bars, Pop Tarts, etc.) - $0.85
  • Fruit Snacks and Chips - $1.00
  • Cookies - $1.25

A few other notes on A La Carte:

  • Any student can participate, but all students are charged the amounts above, regardless what their charge for lunch is. (I.e. - Free, Reduced, and Paid status for lunch is irrelevant for A La Carte. All are charged the same in A La Carte).
  • If a student has a negative balance they will not be able to purchase a la carte.
  • If a parent does not want their student(s) participating in a la carte, they can let food service know, and we have a way to mark it in our system, not allowing a la carte purchases for these student(s).

these people need us! Can you help?
