What's for Lunch?
About the HCS Meal Program
Eating a healthy breakfast and lunch is an important lifestyle habit for staying healthy and feeling good. Eating school meals is a great way for students to get the nutrients they need to stay alert in school and build strong bodies and minds. The Haleyville City Schools Child Nutrition Program staff are committed to helping students make healthy food choices and being physically active throughout the day. Our desire is for students to develop lifelong practices that will prevent obesity and chronic diseases as they grow older.
School cafeterias offer a variety of nutritious foods at a reasonable meal price. For healthy meals each day, encourage your child to eat school breakfast and lunch. Haleyville City Schools is proud to opt into the Community Eligibility Provision allowing all students to eat school meals at NO COST during the 2023-2024 school year.
While meals may be at no cost, students can purchase a la carte items like chips, ice cream, beverages, etc. to compliment their free meal. To do so, students must have money in their account. We encourage parents to use MySchoolBucks, our on-line cafeteria payment program, to deposit money into their student's meal account and monitor what your student is purchasing. Accounts may be set up for each student by going to: www.myschoolbucks.com. MySchoolBucks sign up instructions are attached above.
Did you know that kids 18 and under are able to get FREE meals during the summer when school is not in session? Visit https://www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks to find a Summer Food Service Program near you!
