Grab & Go Meals (updated 9/21/20)
 
Beginning September 11, 2020 on every Tuesday and Friday, there will be Grab & Go meals available for the students to take home.  The meals will consist of 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches that have been cooked and cooled and just need to be reheated. Families may pick up meals at the school location that is most convenient for them. The menu for K-5 is different from grades 6-12 and can be viewed at https://phsd.nutrislice.com/
 
Hybrid Learning Students (for days when in school)
Elementary and Middle School will need to pre-order these meals on Monday & Thursday so we can have them ready and prepared for them to home.  Students can do this while making their lunch selections for the day, please talk about this with your students at home. High School will be passing out Grab and Go Meals as they leave the building, it will be choice to take a bag home with them.

Virtual Learning Students
We will have specific pick up times at each building for meal pick up.  These students will have the Grab & Go meals as well on Tuesday and Friday to begin on September 11th.  They will receive a total of 5 full meals for the week, 3 Tuesday and 2 Friday.

Smart Snacks
 
Last summer, the USDA published practical, science-based nutrition standards for all foods and beverages sold to students during the school day (outside of the school meals programs). These nutrition standards are called Smart Snacks in School. The standards make healthier foods and beverages available to students while limiting those foods with less nutrition.
 
Smart Snacks apply to all foods and beverages sold to students outside of the school meals programs - including vending machines, a la carte, school stores, snack carts and in-school fundraising. Smart Snacks will be in effect for the entire school day.
 
Smart Snacks will not apply to foods served, such as classroom celebrations and during evening, weekend or community events.
 
The Nutrition Group has worked closely with your district to implement these new nutrition standards. New products have been sampled and made available to all districts.
 
Some changes that you can expect to see include:
  • Whole grain crackers and snack bars, baked chips, low fat, whole grain cookies, popcorn and fruit cups.
  • Beverages at the Elementary and Middle schools are limited to plain water, fat free or low fat milk and 100% fruit or vegetable juice.
  • High School beverages can include additional “no calorie” or “lower calorie” beverages that have ≤ 40 calories per 8 fluid ounces or that have ≤ 60 calories per 12 fluid ounces.
We recognize that healthy, well-nourished students are better learners! Students who consume healthier foods and beverages are more likely to get the nutrients they need to learn, play and grow.
 
As we work to change the foods and beverages throughout the district we appreciate your support. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your Food Service Director, Tammi Davis at (412) 793-7000, Ext. 6182.
