School Breakfast and Lunch

Students are offered five menu items daily for lunch.  Of the five items offered each student must select three items.  Due to USDA regulations, all students in Pre-K-12 must select a 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable for lunch in addition to or as one of the three items. USDA has implemented these changes to encourage students to eat more fruits and vegetables. The USDA has lowered their requirements for total calories, sodium and saturated fat for all menus.

Elementary menus offer multiple breakfast choices daily and one lunch choice daily.  High Schools menus also offer multiple breakfast choices daily and a choice of main entree, entree salad or sandwich for lunch. Some of our students will get to taste test new products this school year that could be featured on our menus for next school year. Our menus consist of nutritionally balanced choices that include a variety of fruit, vegetables, low-fat milk, whole grains and meat or meat alternate.

Tangipahoa Parish School System may experience last minute menu changes as a result of the nationwide food supply issues.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through these challenges. We look forward to serving all of our students free breakfast and lunch this school year.
