Every student in the Candia Moore school will be offered a nutritious, state-approved lunch at a price that has been approved by the School Board for that school year if they desire. However,
A. When the balance is $5 or less, a letter will be sent home with the student. A student with a negative balance will not be allowed to purchase snacks.
B. If the negative balance reaches $20.00, the Food Service Director will call the parent/guardian.
C. If a student has a negative balance, he/she will be allowed to charge a reimbursable lunch or milk.
D. Students will be able to charge lunch subject to the criteria of this policy; all others may
participate in a pre-payment program.

Under extenuating circumstances, and on a case-by-case basis, the Food Service Director may use her/his discretion when implementing this policy.

Reimbursable Lunch – All five components are offered (milk, protein, bread or starch, and two different servings of fruit and/or vegetable) and student takes three.

The districts will redefine delinquent debt as bad debt at the end of the school year or if the student leaves the district for any reason. At the time that the debt is redefined as bad, the non-profit food service account will be made whole by a transfer of nonfederal funds from the district or the SAU.
