How do I apply for free or reduced lunch?
Families that have children attending a public school district can apply for free or reduced price school meals through the National School Lunch Program online using the Internet! This can be done using COMPASS. COMPASS allows Pennsylvanian's to apply for social service programs, such as Food Stamps (FS), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Energy Assistance, Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), etc., online.
Since your child attends a school in the Perkiomen Valley School District, which is a public school district, you can apply for free or reduced price school meals online by going to the COMPASS website at www.compass.state.pa.us or you can continue to use the paper "Household Meal Benefit Application" if you prefer. If you apply for free or reduced price school meals through COMPASS, you do not need to submit a paper application.
Lunch applications are sent home the first day of school. If you did not receive one, there are copies in the school offices or the cafeteria manager can give one to your student any time during the school year. Please fill out all the information on the application and send it back to the school with your student. Your application will be compared to the Federal Guidelines and you will be notified by the Food Service Office of the outcome. If you need help in filling out the application or have any questions, please call the Food Service Office at 610-489-8506.
What does a lunch platter consist of?
The student may select one entree, two side dishes (choice of fresh or canned fruit, vegetables, tossed salad or soup) and milk (choice of lowfat or skim white milk and fat free chocolate and strawberry). Students must take at least one fruit or veggie and at least three items total to count as a complete meal.
Can I prepay for meals?
Yes. All schools have a Point of Sale program in place. You may deposit money into your student's account at any time. If you want to deposit money, please use a plain envelope and write your student's name, cafeteria ID number and amount of money enclosed. Checks can be made payable to "PV Food Service." You can also make deposits into your students account through MyLunchMoney.com. Please click on "MyLunchMoney" on the menu bar on the left.
What happens if my child forgets his lunch, lunch money or milk money?
A maximum of five "charged" meals will be allowed. After five "charged" meals, the student will be instucted that they need to bring a meal from home until their account is current.
The Point of Sale System will show a negative balance until money is deposited. The cashier will remind the student to deposit money. Money should be sent to the cafeteria as soon as possible. No credit is issued for snack items.
What do I do if my child has allergies?
Please click on "Students with Special Dietary Needs" on the menu bar on the left.
How do I get a copy of the menu?
Menus are posted on the District Web page. If you do not have web access and would like a copy of the menu, please call your school office and request a copy.
