  • Recent updates to the USDA’S Food and Nutrition Service Waivers have allowed South Adams to utilize SSO meal service for the entirety of the 2021-2022 school year. This is effective the first day of school for students August 10, 2021 students will be eligible to receive free meals at school. This USDA waiver will provide students with one regular lunch and one regular breakfast for each scheduled day of school regardless of the individual’s free/reduced status. Breakfast is served 7:20-7:55 a.m. in the cafeteria. A La Carte charges will still apply for extra milk, extra entrée, second meals, etc. No paperwork is required for free meals- we do encourage you to fill out free/reduced paperwork to be eligible for textbook benefits however.


    The South Adams Food Service Department would like to thank all who participated in our initial questionnaire at registration to provide us with helpful feedback. This feedback helps us improve and know what we can strive towards achieving in the days to come. While some adjustments will continue to be made over the course of the school year, please note our school is required to meet compliance of the State of Indiana requiring our meals to meet restrictions in regards to calories, fat, sodium, fruit/vegetable servings as well as limiting of high calorie foods such as condiments. All foods served including sauces, condiments, seasonings must be accounted for in the daily meal pattern and are specific to age group.


    We appreciate your feedback and will take into consideration your thoughts as we focus on future menus and food ordering. Please note that while there are many foods we enjoy in the comfort of our own homes, we are unable to serve them in the school cafeteria due to federal regulations. If you have any questions or further concerns, please feel free to contact the South Adams Food Service Department. Thank you for your time and consideration

This plan applies a $1.00 transaction fee to each electronic payment you make. For payments made by credit card, there is an added convenience fee that would be a flat fee of $2.45 per $100 made. The system also carries a Non-Sufficient Funds (NSF) charge of $15. When you set up your account, please review your options carefully.
