About the Food Service Program

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Mt Lebanon School District Food Service Department is to promote good nutrition by providing quality meals while maintaining the highest level of customer satisfaction.

 

The Mt. Lebanon School District’s Food Service Department is committed to providing healthy and well-balanced meals to your children. Our cafeteria is focused on health, wellness and good nutrition. We continuously strive to offer a large variety of quality food choices in the cafeteria.

 

Freshly prepared, nutritious lunches will be provided by our food service department. Our program follows the nutritional requirements of the National School Lunch Program, Mt. Lebanon School District Wellness Policy and meets the nutritional standards set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

Families that have children attending a public school district can apply for free or reduced price school meals through the National School Lunch Program online using COMPASS. COMPASS allows Pennsylvanian’s to apply for social service programs, such as Food Stamps (FS), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Energy Assistance, Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), etc., online. Families can use COMPASS to apply for free or reduced price school meals only, or they can apply for other services at the same time (FS, TANF, etc.). The website is www.compass.state.pa.us or you can continue to use the Free or Reduced Price School Meal application. If you apply for free or reduced price school meals through COMPASS, you do not need to submit a paper application.

Good nutrition is essential to growing children. The food service staff is dedicated to helping develop healthy eating habits for everyone in the district.

Your comments and questions are always welcome.
