New A La Carte Options for Middle School Students

Good news – very excited to share that GRACE Food Service will be offering an A la Carte snack program beginning in January.  A few key features of the program include:
·         Available for purchase by middle school students only (grades 6, 7 and 8)
·         Items for purchase will be Smart Snacks, such as fruit, crackers, chips, pretzels, cereal bars and cookies.  Smart Snack compliant means products sold meet healthy limits for calories, fat, sodium, and sugar.
·         Purchases may only be made if the student has a positive lunch account balance.
·         Certain a la carte items may contain peanuts, tree nuts, milk, eggs, soy, and wheat, and/or may be manufactured in a facility that processes products with these allergens.  
·         If a parent/guardian chooses to not allow their child to purchase A la Carte items, please contact the GRACE Food Service Department so they can update your student’s lunch account accordingly.
