Food Service/Lunch Program
ELGS will continue to participate in the NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM (NLSP) for grades K-12 for the 2023-2024 school year. Please know that there are still some supply chain issues. We apologize for this and will continue to work with what we receive.
Meal costs are as follows:
Milk Tickets $.35/carton or a card of 10 tickets for $3.50.
Snack milk at the Elementary & Middle Schools will be purchased by the quarter.
Quarter 1/42 days x $.35 = $14.70
Quarter 2/46 days x $.35 = $16.10
Quarter 3/44 days x $.35 = $15.40
Quarter 4/47 days x $.35 = $16.45
No daily snack milk tickets will be sold. Students may start or stop paying for milk at quarter start. Reminders will be sent home prior to the start of a new quarter.
*NOTE: milk is INCLUDED with hot lunch. This cost is for milk during snack time. Students who would like to drink a milk with cold lunch will still need a ticket.
School Lunch :
Child Care – 2nd Grade: $3.00/day
3rd – 12th Grade: $3.25/day
Adult guests & staff -- $4.65
Day Care – Grade 8: menus will be similar to last year's program. We will continue to serve the required servings of protein, grains, vegetables, fruit, and milk.
Also available for grades 6 - 8 is a $20.00 value card for à la carte items, such as fresh fruit, yogurt, baked chips, cheese and assorted entrees. Students may also use cash in lunch lines for à la carte items only (tickets will be required for a hot lunch meal).
Remember that Value Cards represent cash. There are no refunds on lost, mutilated, or stolen cards.
High School – The menu will be the same as the elementary/middle school with the correct portions for grades 9-12. The cost is $3.25. High school has an “offer vs serve” option which means that the student MUST choose 3 of the 5 food groups, 1 of which must be a fruit or
vegetable, or combination equal to ½ cup to qualify as a reimbursable meal. Choosing from all 5 food groups is the best option. Ala Carte items will also be available.
We look forward to serving the students this year. Please encourage them to try something new; they just may like it!
