Food Service

Our Lunches look a little different this school year:

At the Elementary, Landis Run & Middle School all students will be limited to a choice of 1 fruit option at lunchtime.

We encourage students to take a fresh fruit, but a fruit juice slushie does count as a fruit.

Additional fruit can be purchased for $0.5o each

At the High School, students who take a meal ($2.50 or $3.50) option can also take up to 2 fruit, 2 vegetables and a milk.

Exceptions include a salad (which counts as 2 vegetables) — students can still take up to 2 fruit and a milk;

fruit & yogurt tray — students can still take up to 2 vegetables and a milk.

Please note that some menu entrees cost $3.50, others $2.50 — free/reduced students can make any entrée a meal by adding a minimal 1/2 cup portion of fruit or vegetable. Please see the menu for entrée pricing.

Any questions regarding the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, a la carte snacks, etc.

Please contact our nutritionist, Kristen Feaga (“figgy”) at FeagaKr@mtwp.net or 717-735-1721.

 MEET OUR NUTRITIONIST…..

 Kristen Feaga, Nutritionist, Manheim Township School District

About Kristen:

Education:

Master of Science in Health Promotion, Mississippi State University

Bachelor of Science in Nutrition, Penn State University

Prior to coming to Manheim Township Kristen worked for the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program, a daycenter for the elderly, and the food services department of Hanover Hospital.  Kristen’s research on the topic of health issues within the school setting has lead her to believe that, “Obesity prevention of children adopts an ecological approach and identifies external influences rather than focusing on the individuals.  These external influences include: families, communities, schools, childcare settings, media and the portrayal of food and food choices, and the food and beverage industries.  The collective effect of these influences makes a huge impact on children’s choices when it comes to making food and physical activity decisions many which influence their entire life.”

Kristen helps develop menus, performs nutrition analysis of our menus, maintains the food allergy database, and works with students to increase fruit and vegetable consumption. Feel free to contact her at: FeagaKr@Mtwp.net with your health & nutrition questions or concerns.
