About Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act

The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 requires all School Food Authorities (SFAs) to inform families about the availability and location of free meals for students over the summer months through the Summer Food Service Program. This is required even if the SFA is not participating in the Summer Meals Program. While York Suburban is not participating in this program, families can use any of the following methods to locate sites that serve free meals to children during the summer:


· Call 211

· Call 1.866.3Hungry or 1.877.8Hambre

· Text “MEALPA” to 877877 during the summer months

· Visit the website: www.fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks (note, this replaces the whyhunger.org website)

· Use the site locator for smartphones - Rangeapp.org

For additional information about the Summer Food Service Program please contact Mary Ringenberg at mringenber@pa.gov or 717.783.6501.

Dine With Us

School meals are a healthy option, a great value and a huge convenience for busy families! We are committed to providing wholesome, high quality menus, prepared fresh daily from locally sourced ingredients whenever available and in season. We offer a variety of meal choices and Smart Snack options that meet NSLP (National School Lunch Program), HHFKA (Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act) and state nutrition guidelines and are analyzed and approved by a Registered Dietitian. We also collaborate with parents, students and school nurses to accommodate the dietary requirements of students with food allergies and other special diets. Please feel free to reach out to us at any time. We are here to help!

Nourishing Growing Minds

Our program is focused on high quality food, progressive nutrition education programs and excellent service. Key program features:

  • We emphasize wholesome, natural ingredients, whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and healthy snacks.
  • We offer a variety of allergen-free foods to accommodate students with allergies.
  • Our menus comply with the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act and state and local wellness guidelines.
  • We educate children about making healthy choices, using our award-winning Nutrition Safari® and Smart ChoicesTM nutrition education materials.
  • Menus are changed monthly to introduce new seasonal specials, incorporating community feedback and the latest menu trends.
  • We support our menu offerings with comprehensive, age-appropriate marketing materials that encourage students to make healthy meal choices.

Wholesome Foods with Natural Ingredients

Our menus include locally sourced items whenever available and in season, featuring wholesome, natural ingredients and minimally processed foods. Highlights include:

  • Products sourced by Whitsons have Zero Trans Fats unless naturally occurring.
  • Our milk is rBGH free, fat-free or 1% and contains no high fructose corn syrup.

  • We source products without artificial ingredients or High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) wherever possible. Examples include breads, dressings, condiments, chocolate milk, etc.
  • We offer fresh fruits and vegetables every day.
  • We prepare our meals with low fat cheeses and lean meats.
  • We feature whole grain pastas, rice, breads, pizza crust, pancakes, waffles and other grain products.
  • We balance potato products and other starchy vegetable offerings with a primary focus on complex carbohydrates and non-starchy vegetables.
  • We bake instead of fry.

Understanding the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA)

The purpose of the HHFKA is to ensure that meals are healthy and well balanced and provide students with all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. The good news is that much of the components of the HHFKA final ruling have already been in place in our school programs for some time, such as:

  • Whole grain offerings
  • Variety of fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Focus on lean protein choices
  • Smart Snack options
  • Fat-free and low-fat milk
  • Reduced sodium content

HHFKA mandates that school lunches have:

  • Age-appropriate calorie limits
  • Larger servings of vegetables and fruits
  • Increased vegetable protein offerings, such as beans
  • Smaller servings of proteins and carbohydrates
