What Makes a Meal?
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires students paying the set meal price or receiving free meals to select menu components that meet the meal pattern. The meal pattern consists of FIVE components: meat/meat alternate, grain, fruit, vegetable and milk.
If the minimum number of components for each meal are not selected by the student, a la carte prices will be charged.
