Lunch Program

SEAS School Hot Lunch Program - Taher, Inc.

Why the change? 
Over the course of the last few years, the price of food has increased dramatically as have the requirements of the USDA. In just two years, the cost of food for school lunches has increased by almost $10,000. Preparing lunches in line with USDA requirements was also becoming more and more difficult. Since we receive a significant amount of federal and state dollars for our school lunch program, we are required to comply with USDA regulations.

Why choose Taher?
The school started looking into a food service provider in the fall of 2015. Other area schools were contacted as were a number of different companies. Taher was not only the most affordable, but they were the most recommended provider. Unlike many other vendors, they were able to offer a service to a school our size. Taher’s lunches meet all USDA requirements.

Meals are prepared fresh the day before. This is similar to how our program has previously worked. Lunches will be delivered to school in the morning and warmed/prepared in our ovens. Our kitchen staff will continue to serve lunches every day. 

What will change?
We will still provide delicious, nutritious meals every school day. Every Friday is “pizza day” and will be provided by a local restaurant. Students will have two choices every day.

The biggest change will be how we order meals; they will have to be ordered in advance. We will no longer be able to have same-day sign-up for lunches.  

How do we place our order?
Below is how the process will work:

  • Each week, families will recieve an online google order form with the menu items for that week.
  • There will be a deadline date on the google order form.
  • Families will have to complete a form for each of their children.
  • In the patriot press and on this webpage (on the sidebar) there is a September Lunch Menu. You can print this off to use for your copy, so you know

Will cost go up?
No. The price of a school lunch for the 2016-17 school year will not change. 

How to pay for lunch:
You can fund your child(s) lunch account by sending in cash and/or check to the school.  Please write the check to SEAS School and put Lunch Account in the MEMO section.
