School lunches

TAHLEQUAH — At Tahlequah Public Schools, the Child Nutrition program works to design meals which meet federal nutritional requirements and are affordable.

Breakfast at any TPS site is $1. Lunch is $2 at elementary schools and $2.25 at the middle school and high school. Staff can eat in the cafeteria and parents are invited to visit their children's schools and try the food for themselves. Adults can eat breakfast for $1.50 and lunch for $3.

Most TPS students are eligible for the reduced meal price program. At the November meeting of the TPS Board of Education, it was reported that only 90 students in the district did not apply to check their eligibility for the reduced prices. Reduced breakfasts are 30 cents and reduced lunches are 40 cents.

As an example of the TPS menus, the high school will serve for the week of Nov. 18-22:

Monday - barbecued chicken, baked beans, broccoli trees, biscuits and orange smiles.

Tuesday - grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup, California mixed veggies, pear halves and Jello.

Wednesday - Thanksgiving dinner of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, yams, sweet peas, cranberry sauce, oat rolls, mandarin oranges and pumpkin mousse.

Thursday - smothered beef patties, cheesy potatoes, sweet peas, homemade sliced bread and peaches.

Friday - macaroni and cheese, carrot sticks, asparagus, breadsticks and apple wedges.
