MEALS and COSTS 


At Sussex Tech we offer both breakfast and lunch daily. The cost for Breakfast is $1.00 paid and $. 30 reduced price. The cost for lunch is $1.85 paid and $. 40 reduced price. Additionally, we offer many varieties of reduced calorie snacks and beverages for purchase. Every student has their own lunch account. Funds may be added to the accounts by check, cash or by using the online prepay system “My School Bucks”. The My School Bucks app is free to join and has some great benefits, but you do pay a small fee for using it to add money to student accounts. Go to www.myschoolbucks.com to sign up for this service. 


FREE and REDUCED COST MEALS 


Each year you must apply to receive free or reduced price meals. If your student is already receiving free or reduced meals you still must apply for the new year. Students already participating in the program will be given a 30 day grace period to submit a new application before benefits are lost or denied. We have paper applications available in the school office and new for this year you may also apply directly from your phone or computer. Go to www.myschoolapps.com and enter the zip code and state in the “find my district” box to get started. Once your application has been processed, you will receive a results letter. If you do not receive a results letter within 10 days of applying either by phone or through the app, you should give us a call. 


NEW THIS YEAR 


In addition to our traditional breakfast at 8:05 a.m. in the cafeteria, we will be piloting “Breakfast after the Bell”. After 1st block, students will have a second chance to eat breakfast by purchasing it from one of the mobile carts set up in the hallways. We hope to bridge the hunger gap 


In addition to the Breakfast after the Bell program we are adding two Grab & Go serving lines at lunch time. The two additional lines should reduce the amount of time students wait to get fed thus giving them more time to enjoy their lunch. 


FOOD ALLERGIES and DIETARY CONCERNS 


All food allergies and dietary concerns should be reported to our nurses first. The foodservice team and the nurses work together closely to care for your student.
