Secretary to Food Service Director
The Penns Grove-Carneys Point Food Service department provides a nutritious and affordable breakfast and lunch daily for our students. We incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables; a variety of milk is offered and whole grain items. Our program meets the requirements set forth by the Sate of New Jersey, Department of Agriculture, Division of Child Nutrition. As a District we adopted the New Jersey Model School Nutrition Policy, which addresses the nutrient content of all snacks and beverages we have available in our cafeterias.
Breakfast: All: $1.50 | Reduced Price: $0.30
Lunch HS & MS: $2.85 | Reduced Price: $0.40
Elementary Lunch: $2.65 | Reduced Price: $0.40
We also offer ala-carte (snack) items for purchase in all buildings except Lafayette Pershing.
Our lunches include five components that provide approximately 1/3 of a child’s daily nutritional needs as mandated by the State of New Jersey, Division of Agriculture, Child Nutrition Program. Each lunch contains: Bread/Grains Meat/Meat Alternate Vegetable Fruit Milk. Students must select one serving of fruit and vegetables.
Please contact the school nurse and present a doctors note for any food allergies or dietary needs.
As a courtesy, the Food Service Department will allow the elementary school students to “charge” meals if they should forget their money. Students who are charging their meal or who have not paid prior meal charges will not be permitted to purchase snacks. All charges must be paid immediately. Excessive charges will result in your child being offered a limited meal menu until payment in full is received. In some cases, the school principal may be involved. Meals on credit policy is posted on website. As in prior years, High School and Middle School students are not permitted to charge meals. We also accept pre-payment for all meals in each building.
