Our Lunch Program: FGCS contracts with Fresh 'n Local Foods (FNL), a Salem-based company, for school lunches that meet or exceed National School Lunch Program nutritional standards. Meals include fresh fruits and vegetables (organic and locally sourced whenever possible). Entrees are freshly prepared, with no artificial colors, artificial flavors or high-fructose corn syrup. Low-fat and non-fat cow's milk is offered with all lunches. Contact: For any questions related to school lunch, please contact Karen Torry at email@example.com or 503-359-4600.
Ordering School Lunch
FGCS requires all students to order school lunch each month, whether they want school lunch every day or only some days. For school year 2021-22, we are moving to an online ordering system. New online order forms will be sent out to parent email addresses around the 10th of each month for the following month. The order form is not posted on the website to avoid spam/inadvertent orders by non-FGCS students.
No-Cost Lunch for 21-22
Thanks to a federal waiver program, FGCS is able to offer school lunch at no cost to all students this year regardless of income and benefits status. PLEASE NOTE: Students still MUST order lunch in advance for each month. Because of limited storage capacity, staffing and funding, we have to require orders in advance. See above for details about ordering.
Monthly menus show what entrees are offered each day of the month. These documents are not order forms. Please look for an all-school email with an online order form around the 10th of each month.
2021-22 Free & Reduced-Price School Lunch Benefits
We encourage families who believe they may qualify for free or reduced-price lunch benefits to apply for benefits online, even though lunch will be served at no costs to all studens who order this year. Free or reduced-price lunch benefits status is used to qualify students or families for many other programs, so it can be helpful to have that status documented.
