Free Reduced Meal Applications

All enrolled households will receive a free! reduced meal application in the mail on or around August 18. Applications can also be picked up from the Crestwood school district board office or any school office . A new application is  required every year even if you have been approved for free/reduced meals in the past. One application is required per household.
Both breakfast and lunch are available to qualifying students.

 

Still Hungry?

Crestwood food service has a new procedure which allows students "second  and more" helpings of fresh fruits and vegetables. If your student is still hungry after a serving of bread, protein, fruit, vegetable and milk they can receive additional helpings of  fresh fruits and vegetables, free! You can find nutrition Information from USDA on school meals here: External Link http://www.fns.usda.gov/fns/ including the "My Plate" project where students can learn about balancing calories, colors and portion sizes to fit their nutritional needs.

 

 

Don't Sit Still!

Students can achieve their best performance by combining good nutrition with physical activity. Two of the most Important factors that lead to a healthy lifestyle are choosing a healthy diet and being physically fit. When your student's nutritional needs are met it is easier to focus and learn. When they are physically fit they are more alert, more positive and enjoy a better quality of life.
