Meal Charging Procedure

The goal of the North Kitsap School District is to provide students with healthy meals each day. While the USDA Child Nutrition Program does not require that students not eligible for free or reduced-price meals be served a meal without payment, the North Kitsap School District believes that all hungry children should be fed. To ensure that hungry children are fed, Food Service cashiers will not deny any student a lunch that meets USDA requirements for a reimbursable meal, regardless of the balance on their Food Service account. The cashier will not single-out students who cannot pay by asking them to tell their parents to send money, by requiring that they work for their meal, by stamping their hands, or by any other method. The cashier may ask if the student has brought money.
