A La Carte for Middle Schools
The a la carte service at our middle
schools is available for a student who forgets to bring a sack lunch or for the
student who would like additional menu items to go with his/her sack lunch or
school lunch. All a la carte menu items are carefully selected to limit calories, sodium, and fat. And increase fiber.
The service provides items
reduced fat/sodium chips and snacks
Peanut Butter & Jelly
mozzarella cheese sticks
Food is prepared in one of the high
schools and transported to the middle schools for service. Occasionally a la carte choices may not be available.
The Food Service Department recommends
middle school students purchase the complete school lunch instead of a la
carte. The school lunch is designed to provide all the nutrients required to
meet the US Dietary Guidelines and 1/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowances
(RDA). In addition, it costs less than purchasing an a la carte lunch.
A La Carte for High Schools
Oshkosh North and Oshkosh West both
offer students an a la carte menu. Students have the choice of choosing any menu item a la carte. A la carte selections will cost more.
A la Carte and Cash
Students using a la carte services
at middle schools and high schools must pay cash. Cashiers will not allow a la
carte purchases, other than milk, to be charged on the family food service
account. In other words, students will not be allowed to use their 5-digit pin
number to make a la carte purchases. This is
done to protect the balance for younger family members using the same family
