Free & Reduced Lunch
Director of Food Services & Wellness
Mrs. Janice Traynor-Hack
The Food Service department at Pawling School District consists of three school lunch employees at each school and a School Lunch Director. We all are proud to provide a healthy appetizing meal for all students and staff at each school. The School Lunch Department strives to works with the Wellness committee, teachers, staff and parents to assure the choices we are offering help students with life skills about good nutrition necessary to encourage a life time of healthy eating habits along with regular exercise.
You will see many new and exciting options for each school provided at an age appropriate level. A traditional lunch pattern is used with the student option (Offer vs. Serve) of five components that make up a Full meal. This means the student are offered 5 items daily, protein, grains, vegetable, fruit and milk.
Offer vs. Serve means you are allowed three (3) components on your tray to be considered a Full Meal. They can be any three components you want as long as they are not of the same food source, such as apple juice and an apple or corn salad and corn muffin. A Hamburger on a whole wheat roll is considered two components, protein and whole grain: a slice of pizza is considered two components, one again protein and a grain. You can choose all five components offered or if you are not that hungry you can choose three components from three different groups.
Offer vs. Serve is still provided with a change; a fruit or vegetable must be on each student breakfast or lunch tray for the reimbursable lunch meal cost. 2012-2013 school year the food service lunch department announces that breakfast is being offered in each school daily. Elementary and middle school students get breakfast as soon as they get off the bus before class begins. High school students can come down to the cafeteria 7:30-9am every day.
