Food Service Department and Forms
Shippensburg Area School District (SASD) is at the forefront of many new and exciting features in cafeteria food service. Each cafeteria in SASD operates with a slightly different offering for students, based on their grade and age.
The SASD Food Service Department welcomes input from students, parents, administration, and community members. The “regular” or menued school lunch program is operated under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). All regular lunches served must meet strict criteria for foods offered, amounts, and nutritional content as stipulated in the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010. The NSLP is monitored and audited by both Federal and State agencies. Due to the Federal and State regulation of the NSLP, the regular or menued lunch is exempt from the Wellness Policy.
In accordance with Federal civil rights law and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) civil rights regulations and policies, the USDA, its Agencies, offices, and employees, and institutions participating in or administering USDA programs are prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by USDA.
Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g. Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.), should contact the Agency (State or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.
