City Day Community School shall provide cafeteria facilities and will provide lunch service for purchase and consumption. The food services provided shall meet the requirements of the National School Lunch Programs, Child Nutrition Act as well as state and federal requirements based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. For specific menus and other publications, please see the "School Publications" section of our website.
A school lunch must include a minimum of three food components. A fruit or vegetable must be selected. If a complete meal is not selected, a student is charged a la carte price. The National School Lunch Program prohibits the sale of carbonated beverages, popsicles, chewing gum, and candies on school campus during school meal serving times. No foods or beverages, other than those associated with the school's food-service program, are to be sold during food-service hours.
City Day Community School participates in the National School Breakfast/Lunch Program. Under these programs all schools who participate must make free and reduced meals available to eligible students. If you believe your family may be eligible and you have not received a form to apply, please contact the School Registrar in the front office to obtain the proper form to apply to the program.
Our nutrition standards prohibit the placement of vending machines in any classroom where students are provided instruction, unless the classroom also is used to serve students meals. No products are vended which would conflict with or contradict information or procedures contained in the District's educational programs on health and nutrition.
