The mission of the Seem Educational Collaborative Food Service Program is to serve nutritious foods that support academic success and encourage lifelong healthy eating patterns. The Food Service Program currently serves breakfast and lunch at all schools. We strive to meet the needs of all students, both nutritionally and socially, by serving meals in a welcoming, pleasant atmosphere.
The School Lunch Program
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program that provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day.
Our school lunch program complies with the United States Department of Agriculture’s food based menu-planning system and nutrient standards, providing meals that meet 1/3 of the RDA (recommended dietary allowance) for calories, as well as required levels of other key nutrients, including fat, saturated fat, protein, vitamin A & C, iron, and calcium. Hot lunches are served daily in all the schools. Students may choose from a variety of lunch options, including alternate meals at all grade levels.
SEEM Collaborative has agreed to participate in the Student Breakfast and Lunch Community Eligibility Provision for four years, beginning July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2023.
The agreement requires that:
SEEM Collaborative will not collect free and reduced price meal applications while under this agreement and SEEM Collaborative will serve all students participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program one free breakfast and one free lunch each day in which meals are served.
If students want to purchase a second breakfast or lunch, they can do so based on the following prices: Breakfast $1.75, Lunch $3.00 Milk/Juice $.50
Staff can purchase breakfast or lunch based on the following prices: Breakfast $2.25, Lunch $4.25, Milk/Juice $.60.
Our menus are developed monthly to reflect the students’ tastes and preferences. Monthly menus are posted on our website, and paper copies are available at your child’s school, in the office area.
