Welcome to Food Services
At Holland Central School District we know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!
The Food Service Department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, food and beverages sold or served in schools must meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Holland's food service program is designed to provide meals that are nutritious, tasty, and appealing to students and staff in a safe, sanitary and cost-effective manner.
*Meal service during the 2020-2021 school year will look different than it has in the past in order to comply with Public Health, CDC, and USDA guidance; our goal is to provide a safe and nutritious breakfast and lunch to students who wish to eat with us. How meals are packaged, how or where meals are served, and the number of entree' choices many vary as we strive to comply with recommendations and mandates to keep students staff safe.*
Available methods to obtain FREE breakfast AND lunch (for the duration of the 2020-2021 school year) are:
- In-person meals
- Meal distribution for remote learning days
Pandemic EBT Information
What is P-EBT?
Pandemic Electronic Tranfer (P-EBT) is a temporary food benefits program available to families with children who would have received free or reduce-price meals (determined by meal application or direct certification) if schools were open.
More P-EBT funds are coming for the 2020-2021 school year for hybrid/remote learners who qualify for free and reduced-price meals.
To be considered, households must submit an annual household income eligibility application ASAP or be approved for Medicaid or SNAP benefits. Families who received benefits last summer are not automatically eligible. Eligibility is based on the current school year.
