The School Lunch Program is an integral part of the Salem Public School System. We strive to meet the needs of all the students and staff, both nutritionally and socially, by serving a nutritious breakfast and lunch of high quality in a cheerful, pleasant and welcoming atmosphere. It is our role to encourage everyone to eat a breakfast and lunch that conforms to the dietary guidelines for healthy Americans while recognizing the individual preferences of each person who participates in our program. Menus are created monthly and reflect the students’ tastes by offering the choices most popular to students. All lunches include an assortment of vegetables and fruits. A variety of milk (skim, low-fat and low-fat flavored) is offered with each meal. The monthly menu can be viewed on the Salem Public Schools web site.
Parents are encouraged to pay for their children’s meals in advance. Credits can be carried over to the following week. A coded roster system, which prevents overt identification of meal benefits, is utilized to track meals served to students receiving free or reduced priced meals as well as those who pay full price.
