FOOD SERVICES

A well-balanced lunch is served daily in each of the district's six schools. As mandated by the National School Lunch Program, each lunch offered includes five components: a protein meat or meat alternate, a grain, a vegetable, a fruit, and eight ounces of fat free or low-fat milk. There is a choice of entrees that are available each day, including both hot and cold selections. There are also three vegetable choices, a variety of fresh fruits and fruit juices to choose from, a "dessert" item, and a variety of cold milks. While at least five components are offered each day, your child may choose as little as three foods to complete a meal. A MEAL MUST HAVE A 1/2 CUP OF FRUIT OR VEGETABLES or the meal will be charged as a ala' carte purchase.

The Free and Reduced Breakfast and Lunch Programs are available for low-income families, which adheres to the National Breakfast and Lunch Program guidelines. Apply after July 1st of each school year. You may apply at any time if there are any income changes. If you have received a Direct Certification Letter for the 2013-2014 school year from the Food Service Director, you do not need to reapply.

Point of Sale

Governor Mifflin School District has a online option that allows you to monitor your children’s lunchtime expenditures and make payments with your credit card. It gives you the capability to view what your children have eaten over the last 30 days. This new program allows the parents to have control of your child's daily purchases. Each child’s account statement is updated continuously so that the information is current. Payments will now be available the same day.

parentonline.net is now available for making online deposits and to make the selections for the purchases that are allowed for your child's meal account. You will also be able to use your credit card to make your deposits. There is a fee of $1.75 per deposit day. If you have more than one child in the District, the fee will be the same amount of $1.75. If you wish to transfer money from one chil's account to another, please contact Jenelle Himmelreich, Food Service Director at 610-775-5083 x 5554 or email jhimmel@gmsd.k12.pa.us.

There is no fee to create and maintain your child's accounts. You may view the purchasing history as well as be notified for low balances through email.

This technology allows us to provide debit accounts for purchases, and increases the speed of food service to students so they have more time to eat and converse. Parents enjoy the convenience of prepaying for their child’s purchases at whatever level they choose. The point of sale system also eliminates the overt identification of students who are eligible for free or reduced meal benefits. 

The System allows you to pay in advance for meals and/or A la Carte items. Students still have the option to pay cash on a daily basis. We urge you to take full advantage of this system by placing money into your child’s account on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis. You choose the amount you want to deposit.  Any money not spent by the end of school will be available for your child’s use the following school year.       

We are proud of the quality Food Service Program we offer at Governor Mifflin School District, and we do our best to keep our customers, the students happy and well fed. If you have any questions about the Food Service Program at any of Governor Mifflin Schools, you can reach the Food Service Office at (610) 775-5083 ext.5554.
