Nutrition Services purchases high quality products for our school cafeterias. Our chicken tenders and patties are made from all white meat chicken breast meat and have a whole grain breading. Our beef patties and ground beef for pasta sauce are 100% beef with clean label ingredients. We bake or steam all menu items and offer fresh fruits and vegetables to accompany meals on a daily basis. All of our bread products are made from whole grains, and our milk choices are 1% fat or fat free. All of our juices are 100% juice and served in no more than 6 ounce containers at elementary and middle schools, and no more than 8 ounce containers at high schools. Our packaged snacks are low in fat, sodium, and sugar, and have no trans fats.
We encourage prepayment of meals and snacks for your convenience. You may pay by check written out to West Hartford Nutrition Services and send it with your student to school, or pay on line at www.PAYPAMS.com. A nominal processing fee will be charged, and it will take 1-2 business days for the funds to be available in the cafeteria. You can also receive E-mail notification of your child’s account balance at no charge. Students use their school ID number at the cash register for pre-purchased meals.
If a student’s meal account becomes depleted, Nutrition Services will still provide a meal of the student’s choice and inform them that they are borrowing money that day to pay for this lunch. Students will be allowed to borrow for three days only at elementary schools, and one day only at secondary schools, and will not be allowed to borrow for snacks or any a la carte items.
Thank you for your interest and participation in our program. We look forward to serving your students in our cafeterias.
