Hudson Nutrition - Celebrating our Healthier US School Challenge Award Winning Menu

TRY SCHOOL BREAKFAST - HUDSON NUTRITON OFFERS BREAKFAST FOR OUR MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS DAILY! WE ALSO PARTNER WITH HCER TO OFFER OUR EXPLORER ZONE BEFORE CARE STUDENTS A BREAKFAST AS WELL.  A breakfast at school provides a well rounded source of whole grain and/or protein, fruit, and lowfat or fat free milk to start your students day off right!

School LUNCH MEALS offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. School lunches also meet additional standards requiring:
·         Age-appropriate calorie limits
·         Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
·         A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
·         Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
·         More whole grains
·         And less sodium
We’re always working to offer Hudson students healthier and tastier choices. We continue to work  to enhance our program, as well as provide opportunities to connect the cafeteria as an extension of the curriculum teaching a life time habit of health and nutrition!  We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria this fall, to get the facts about school meals visit www.TrayTalk.org.

            Hudson City Schools offers Horizon OneSource System in their cafeterias.  This technology allows us to provide debit accounts for purchases, and increases the speed of food service to students so they have more time to eat and converse.  Parents enjoy the convenience of prepaying for their child’s purchases at whatever level they choose.  The Horizon OneSource System also eliminates the overt identification of students who are eligible for free or reduced meal benefits.  Parents can take advantage of our online services to include credit card or ACH payment options and viewing their child’s lunch purchases at mychoolaccount.com.  The identification of students is a biometric finger scan. The scan correlates to the student ID number (EMIS Number). This number ensures unique identification and will avoid duplication of numbers for accounting purposes.  Students use a scan of either index finger at the point of service to utilize their accounts. 

  In order to provide this service and continue to offer our meals at a reasonable price, we will be enforcing a district policy whereby money must be placed on the account prior to purchasing.  Students will have to have monies on account in order to purchase lunches and ala carte items.  If a negative balance greater then $5.00 is incurred, the student will be offered an alternate meal of a cheese sandwich, milk, fruit, and vegetable side and you will receive a reminder call from E-connect system regarding your low account status.

 We urge you to take full advantage of this system by placing money into your child’s account per your discretion on a weekly, monthly, or annual basis.  Check or cash deposited in the blue envelopes in the district offices will be posted within 24 hours for purchasing.  Any money not spent by the end of school year will be available for your child’s use the following school year.  Should you ever want to access your child’s account to verify his/her purchases or to make online payments you may sign up for www.mypaymentsplus.com, or request a report by calling the Nutrition Service Department at 330-653-1203.  Please remember, we will not be accepting money during the lunch lines to decrease the amount of time students wait in line, and increase the amount of time they have to eat.

              We are proud of the quality Nutrition Service Program we offer in HudsonCitySchool District, and we do our best to keep our customers, the students of Hudson happy and well fed.  If you have any questions about the Nutrition Service Program you can reach me at the Food Service Office at 330-653-1203.
