School Lunch Program

SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM

If you ask any Trinity alumnus to describe a favorite memory about the years they spent here, their answer is always the same, “the school lunches.”   Our cafeteria staff is committed to serving delicious and nutritious lunches at an affordable cost.  We participate in the Federal School Lunch Program and the Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program is available to our families.  Applications for this program are sent to each family before the start of the school year and are also available in  the school office throughout the year if a financial need arises. Student prices for the 2015-2016 school year are as follows: Lunch – $2.25 and Milk – $0.60.   Paying for and tracking your child’s lunches is made easy through the “Heartland Payment Systems” (Nutrikids)  online program.   Lunch menus are posted on our website at the beginning of each month.  Students who bring their lunch should bring nutritious lunches from home.  Students should not have “fast food” lunches delivered to them.  Beverages may only be: water, milk, or juice. Soda is NOT allowed.
