SEAMAN FOOD SERVICE MISSION STATEMENT
To provide meal programs with nutritional integrity to all Seaman School District students that encourage a positive environment for learning. We are committed to operating a program that is financially responsible and provides nutrition education opportunities for all students and their families.
MENUS Nutritional information is included on the menus. Menus are planned by the Food Service Director to meet the meal pattern requirements of the National School Lunch Program and other USDA programs. A computerized nutrient analysis program is utilized to plan menus to meet the requirements. Menus are subject to change due to circumstances that may be beyond our control, such as a snow day or product availability.ADULT MEALS Student prices are less than adult prices because the school receives federal and state reimbursement money for each meal served that meets the requirements. No reimbursement is available for adult meals. Adults may purchase a meal or individualized items and do not have to follow the same meal pattern as students. Adult portion sizes are the same as students in grades 9-12.
2016-17 Meal Prices Elementary Lunch (K-6) $2.50 Secondary Lunch (7-12) $2.75 Adult Lunch $3.75 Student Breakfast $1.75 Adult Breakfast $2.25 Reduced Lunch .40 Reduced Breakfast .30 Extra Milk .50
Seaman Food Service Information 2016-17
Does your child qualify for free or reduced price meals, but you send a meal from home? Your child can still select a reimbursable meal (½ cup fruit and/or vegetables, milk, and one other item on the menu) from our daily choices, and enjoy additional items you may send from home. Perhaps your child prefers a sandwich from home, but he or she would also like to get fruit, vegetables, and cold milk from Seaman Food Service. We can do that! However, Seaman Food Service cannot provide milk only at no charge with a sack meal from home. Please call 575-8650 if you have questions.
Extra Milk is $.50
(Seaman does not have a free milk program. If a student takes only milk there will be a charge of .50)
What is a school lunch at Seaman Elementary Schools?
Student meal accounts are debit accounts.
Accounts must have a positive meal account balance.
A Seaman Elementary School Lunch with ONE ENTRÉE: $2.50
(or .40 per meal if a student is qualified for reduced price meals)
Meals are to be paid for in advance. A new application for participation in the free and reduced price meal program must be filled out each school year.
Offer increases your choice in student meals. Every lunch is planned to include all five food groups:
1. Fruit 2. Vegetable 3. Protein 4. Grains 5. Milk
The food groups for each meal will be posted at the beginning of each serving line. You are encouraged to take all the foods offered; however, you may decline up to (2) food groups. Whether you take 3, 4, or 5 of the food groups, the meal is the same price.
STEP 1: Choose ½ cup of fruits, vegetables, or a combination of both
STEP 2: Choose 2 or more of the following different choices:
• Full Serving of Fruit
• Full Serving of Vegetable

MEAL MODIFICATION REQUESTS
A school is required to make meal modifications prescribed by a licensed physician to accommodate a student's disability. Seaman Food Service will make meal modifications prescribed by a medical authority due to a food allergy/intolerance or other medical condition that does not rise to the level of a disability with a completed "Meal Statement to Request School Meal Modification". Substitutions are made only when supported by a statement signed by a recognized medical authority and the parent. The form is on this website, or at the Food Service Department.
Make sure your student has money in their account if they are eating school breakfast or lunch. If your student has a negative balance from past school years, he or she will not be able to purchase a meal on the first day of school until the account is brought current and paid in advance. Seaman Food Service is not eligible to participate in the free snack milk program. If snack milk is offered at your school, the student will be charged 50¢ a day for one milk as this amount is not reimbursed through the free or reduced price meal benefit program"
