Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School Food Services
The mission of the Smith Vocational and Agricultural High School Food service is a commitment to contributing to a healthy school environment for our students by providing a variety of healthy meals to ensure their readiness to learn.
All lunches are prepared on site
There are one or more food service assistants at school that are ServSafe Certified as required per Mass Dept of Health
Free and Reduced Meal Applications – The 2017-2018 applications were mailed out at the beginning of the school or you can download, complete and return to school no later than Sept. 22, 2017. Every student must submit a new application each year. An application can be submitted at any time during the school year or when the family’s income changes.
Our meals are served Offer vs. Serve which means that we offer choices that are broken into components consisting of protein, vegetables, fruits, milk and grain requirements. The student must choose a least 3 components, one of which must be a fruit or vegetable. He/she can take all 5 components if they choose.
The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is governed by the federal (United States Department of Agriculture) and state (Department of Elementary and Secondary Education) regulations, and all menus must meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The menu planning system required by the NSLP is designed to provide children with approximately 1/3 of the key nutrients and calories they need according to the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA’s)

Cold/hot sandwiches (ham, turkey, peanut butter & jelly, tuna) (chicken patty-whole grain breaded, hamburgers/cheeseburgers)
