UPDATE: December 7, 2020
Beginning December 10th and ending on January 15th, Holland Patent CSD will be fully remote. With this in mind, school meals will be available for pickup or delivery. We offer a choice of pbj uncrustable or a burger for the lunch choice. The burger will come frozen and it is fully cooked. All you have to do is heat it to your liking.
To pick-up: Show up to the loading dock, behind the High School, between 10am-12pm Monday through Friday.
For delivery: Email Mr. Cliff Casab at email@example.com providing your last name, number of kids 18 and younger, delivery address and whether you would like a burger or PBJ uncrustable as the lunch choice. Deliveries will be made Monday through Friday between 10am-12pm.
UPDATE: November 9, 2020
Free Meals for ALL children!
The USDA has extended the waiver that allows school lunch programs to offer a free breakfast and a free lunch to all children regardless of income eligibility. This is available to both in-person learners as well as remote learners. Everyone is eligible!
Remote Learner Grab & Go Meals available for pickup
For all the children that are not in school during the day, we offer pickup for the meals. The pickup location is the loading dock behind the high school and it is available any day school is in session from 10:00am – 12:00pm.
To make things easier for busy schedules, we can offer more than one day’s worth of meals at a time. Staying within Federal and State guidelines we are able to give out up to 5 days of meals at a time.
Changes coming to Grab & Go Lunch choices for pickup
At the time of this writing, we offer a ham sandwich or pbj uncrustables for the lunch choice. Very soon, if not already, we will be transitioning away from the ham sandwich. We will be offering some ready-to-heat menu items in place of the ham sandwich. For example you may get a ciabatta cheese melt, BBQ rib patty with bun, or hamburger with bun, etc… When the time comes, a menu will be developed to alert families of the choices. This pickup menu will likely last a week at a time and it will be a single choice. For example, this week it may be burgers, the next week bbq rib patties, the next week something else, etc…
The only choice you will have to make is whether you want the entrée of the week or PBJ Uncrustables. The remote pickup lunch menu will not mirror the on-site menu. However, all items offered will be an item that has been on the menu in the past. These ready-to-heat items will be fully cooked items and only need to be heated to temperature. Items will be distributed in a frozen state. Cooking instructions will be included where applicable.
Welcome to School Lunch!
Holland Patent Central school district believes that a well-nourished child is a child ready to learn. Because of this belief, Holland Patent School participates in the National School Lunch Program. Lunch is served in all our buildings. Breakfast is served in elementary schools. The State Education Department allows Holland Patent to run a lunch program. The lunch program is to be self-sufficient with no direct dollars coming from the general fund. The lunch is expected to be paid for at the time of purchase. The district does allow a child to borrow if they forget their money, but this should be paid back as soon as possible.
Under the federal guidelines, a lunch consists of five components – 1 meat or meat alternate, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable, bread and milk. A student needs to only take 3 components to make a lunch under offer vs serve. Offer vs. serve also applies to breakfast. Four components are offered, (meat or meat alternate, a fruit or fruit juice, one grain and milk) but a student need only take three to qualify for a breakfast.
We also sell snack items in the schools. Ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, and chips are a few of our snack items. This is an extra we have for the students. Snack items are not allowed to be charged on the accounts. If a student wishes to purchase a snack, there needs to be money on the account or money in their hand.
This is just a brief description of our program. Please feel free to call at any time with your questions.
