Food Service Department
Holly Area Schools, in partnership with Chartwells, recognizes that breakfast and lunch time is as much about learning as the classroom. Through creative marketing and nutritional education, we strive to teach children about the best choices for life-long health and wellness. Our school facilities utilize fully operating kitchens to prepare foods from scratch and batch cook so each meal is as fresh as possible. Every school also offers a "food bar" with daily selections of fresh romaine lettuce and assorted fresh fruits, vegetables, and composed salads.

Dear Holly Area Schools families,
At Holly Area Schools, we are committed to ensuring all Bronchos are fed and ready to learn every school day. I’m writing to inform you of nationwide supply chain interruptions that may require us to make substitutions to our planned free breakfast and lunch menus.
While our menus have always been subject to change, we’ve been informed we may experience some added delivery interruptions this school year due to ongoing effects of the pandemic impacting manufacturing, labor and distribution.
I understand such changes can be difficult for students, and that children with complex medical needs also rely on our menus to prepare and plan for medications. We want to assure you we are doing everything we can to keep these changes to a minimum. We will be notifying families of any menu changes as soon as they are identified.
We are placing orders further ahead of schedule so we can communicate effectively and make menu changes in a timely fashion. We will use all avenues of communication to relay these changes with our buildings, staff and families.
We apologize for any inconvenience this situation may cause for our students and families. If you have any questions or if I can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at (248) 328-3033 or Joanne.email@example.com.
Food Service Payments
Our Holly Area Schools point-of-sale system allows money to be added to any child's account via cash or check at any of our registers throughout the district. Parents and Guardians are also able to apply money to their student's accounts through the online payment system e~Funds for Schools which can be accessed directly through your Skyward Family Access account.
Please refer to our Online Payments web page for more information and instructions.
If you ever have any questions in regards to your child's account please feel free to contact the Food Service Department at any time.

Local Meal Charge Policy
The following is Holly Area School District's meal charge policy:
Students will be allowed to carry a negative balance equivalent to two (2) meal charges. After that time, students will be given a substitute lunch and/or breakfast until charge balance is paid.
In addition, no student carrying a negative balance will be allowed to purchase a la carte items even if they have cash in hand.
Our goal every day is to feed children a healthy breakfast and lunch. Your cooperation is appreciated.
For our menus, we utilize Nutrislice which is a program to allow parents and students to view menus and nutritional information via the web and cell phone.
