Food Service Program
The Altoona Area School District is participating in the USDA Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year.
This means that our school is providing free meals to all students!
This program provides additional support and flexibility for our district to continue serving meals to children while maintaining safety measures and managing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even though receipt of free meals does not depend on an approved free and reduced-price meal application, we are still distributing and processing them so AASD families may qualify for P-EBT benefits as well as other school funding. See application information below.
NOTE: Learning Express Preschool at Penn-Lincoln Elementary follows the Elementary Menus. Some changes may be made to the menus without notice to accommodate the needs of the Preschool students. Also be advised that the Preschool does NOT follow the AASD School Calendar, but their own LEX Calendar which may be accessed on the Preschool Website.
Metz Culinary Management - Your child’s nutrition is our top priority.
Healthy eating habits start early. We’ve been a leader in nutrition by establishing programs that enhance the well-being of students, faculty and staff.
Our menus are designed to encourage healthy eating and promote nutrition education. We design programs that get students involved with the food they eat, whether they learn about growing, selecting, or preparing it.
We look to provide your students with a friendly, welcoming environment where they can recharge and refuel. We’ll do our part to contribute to top performance in the classroom.
