The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act was approved by the federal government and is now law.  Morgan School District, and many other districts in the state, participate in the national school lunch program and are required to comply with the new standards and guidelines set by the government.  The new lunch menus are now aligned with this law. We will be offering more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and fewer desserts.  Students participating in the school lunch program must choose at least one fruit or vegetable, plus two other food items.  They may also choose to take all of the food items offered which would include both the fruit and vegetable.  This change will help ensure that students will have on their tray a healthy, balanced meal everyday that meets federal government guidelines.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 was passed by a bipartisan congress in late 2010. The Act recognized that foods and beverages sold in schools were generally of poor quality and changed the requirements for school meals and for the school environment in which the meals are served.
