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.

Free School Meals for All Students Has Ended

When the 2021-2022 school year ended, so did free meals for every student. While the federal government funded a program that allowed all students access to free meals during the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress recently declined to continue funding this program. 

If your student qualifies for free or reduced meals, they can still receive them this fall, but you must take action to make it happen. Please make sure to complete the 2022-2023 online application, paper applications are also available at the school where your child attends, KRC Campus Administration Building or by calling food services department.

If you do not qualify for free or reduced meals, you may begin depositing money into student accounts at any time. Information on meal prices for the 2022-2023 school year are listed below:

   Breakfast Meal Price Lunch Meal Price
  Elementary   $1.25   $2.25
  Middle School   $1.25   $2.75
  High School   $1.25   $3.75

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.
