August 2021 - FOOD SERVICE NEWS
Dear Parents or Guardians:

Great news for you and your children!  The Troy Area school District will continue to offer free healthy breakfast and lunch to all students during the 2021-2022 school year. 

Our district is receiving free meals for all students as part of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) through a choice for schools called the SSO (Seamless Summer Options).

In addition to free breakfast and lunch, the Troy Intermediate School and Troy Jr/Sr High School will offer a la carte snack items that your student may purchase using their lunch account money.  Their account must contain sufficient funds to cover any a la carte purchase.

If you have any questions, please call the Food Service department at 570-297-2750 ext 2206.

Press Release 
 Troy Area School District
Celebrates National School Breakfast Week
“Taking off with National School Breakfast”
 
The Troy Area School District Food Service Department celebrated National School Breakfast Week March 7-11, 2022. 
 
On Wednesday, March 9, 2022, WR Croman Primary school students had special visitors from the Troy Jr/Sr High School’s athletes and cheer squad.  The athletes and cheerleaders ventured to the primary school to encourage younger students to have breakfast and support the importance of eating breakfast every day.  The athletes also spoke to the students about the sport they play, the positions and how the game works.   
 
This promotion increased our breakfast participation 57% at WR Croman!   
 
The Troy boys basketball team departed for the State Championship later on this day.  They had an amazing season with a tough loss to a team from York, Pennsylvania.  The Lady Trojan basketball team went to districts again this year and they also had an amazing season.  
 
The Troy School District has been providing healthy breakfasts for our students for several years and this event gave the students a good opportunity to explore some of our breakfast options.

"Message: Hi Bonnie! When we got home this evening, my 7-year-old was helping me put the food in the fridge/freezer. He said, "They sure did take a lot of time putting everything in bags for us." He was very impressed, happy, and appreciative. :). I asked him if we should send you a thank you note, and he said yes. Thank you very much for your time and efforts, and thank you for this service! Please tell your staff we appreciate their hard work!"

2021/2022 Update:  
We will be reinforcing our commitment to good nutrition for your children. Your child must choose at least one fruit or vegetable with lunch. We will be encouraging the students to try new vegetable selections. There will be a great selection of fruits and vegetables. Milk will be 1% flavored & fat free or 1% low fat white milk. All of our grain offerings are 50% whole grain rich. We have been granted whole grain flexibility with our breadsticks and pasta offerings. All of our foods are trans fats free and the sodium is limited.
