Farm Tour to Longview Farm

A picture from our farm tour on June 3rd to Greener Partners' Longview Farm in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. Students from Saul Agricultural and Northeast High Schools and staff from The School District of Philadelphia and Food Trust participated as part of SDP's Farm to School Program.  

Breakfast and lunch offered to ALL students at no charge.

For all District schools, starting this school year,  daily breakfast and lunch meals will be provided to all students at NO charge.   All students enrolled in a district school can eat at no cost and there is no application required!

Parents will no longer be required to complete the Meal Application form and blank applications will no longer be delivered to school locations.

These improvements are the result of the District's successful transition to a new school meals program option to offer school breakfast and lunch every day to all students at no charge.  

New Snack Standards

Foods and beverages sold to students outside of the school meal programs, on the school campus, and at any time during the school day are subject to new federal guidelines effective July 1, 2014.  The food standards apply to foods sold in vending machines, a la carte lines, schools stores and school based fundraisers.  Learn More Here.
