How to Purchase Lunch

How to Purchase Lunch

St. Barnabas School is proud to provide your children with a variety of nutritious lunch selections at reasonable prices. We are committed to serving what our students prefer to eat while encouraging healthy choices, teaching portion control and reducing waste.  Our School Nutrition Specialist utilizes many of the National School Lunch Program's healthy guidelines to ensure good nutrition is at the center of every plate.  Each lunch consists of five components:  protein, grain, vegetable, fruit and milk. No other beverage may be substituted for milk.  Silk Soy milk (vanilla & chocolate), Capri Sun 100% juice, Switch sparkling juice (no added sugar), Gatorade Zero (no sugar) and/or water may be purchased at an additional charge. Extra menu items may be purchased on an ala cart basis as well. Please see the back of the menu for details.

The St. Barnabas cafeteria utilizes the FACTS system for purchasing lunch.  Your children will receive a monthly menu the last Thursday of each month and it can also be found on the school website. Lunch orders will be taken in the classroom each morning. Any additional servings must be ordered at that time as well.

How to Pay for Lunch/Unpaid Balance Policy

The cafeteria computer system is linked to your FACTS account where you place money into your children’s accounts for all purchases. No cash will be accepted in the cafeteria.  Please note that all balances, both positive and negative, carry forward from the previous year.  For this year, all balances will be transferred from "myschoolaccount" to your FACTS account by September 1st. 
 

Free and Reduced Lunch Applications

The cafeteria will continue to offer access to the Free & Reduced Price Lunch Program.  Determinations will utilize the current USDA Income Eligibility Guidelines. New this year - the reduced price lunch cost will be $1.00 per full lunch. This program applies to the standard 5 component lunch only.  Additional servings or alternate beverages are at regular cost. Applications are available to download on the school website.
