Healthy Beginnings
Green Mountain School District and Battle Ground School District are committed to providing nutritious meals to the students in the Green Mountain School District. Meals are based on the USDA's nutrition guidelines and include a variety of fresh fruit and vegetable choices, and a variety of chilled non-fat or low-fat milk. With nutritious meals, students are engaged and ready to learn, and helping to establish good eating habits for a lifetime.

Turn in Your Application as Early as Possible
Applications will be reviewed, and an eligibility determination made within 10 working days of the receipt of the application. Even though Green Mountain is running the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) which offers free meals, please turn in an application. Thousands of dollars a year are lost due to eligible families simply not completing and returning these forms.

Reimbursable Meals
Students must take all of the required components of a meal for it to be considered reimbursable and to qualify under the Free and Reduced Meal Program. If any of the required components are declined, the meal is considered non reimbursable and will be charged accordingly.

Milk
If a student only chooses milk, the charge will be 30 cents per milk.

Sack Lunch Availability
Sack lunches are available for students going on field trips and on early release days. The lunches will be prepared by the Battle Ground School District and based on the USDA’s nutrition guidelines. The sack lunches are free as part of the SSO  program. Sack lunches must be ordered three (3) days in advance. There is a check box on field trip forms to order, and a special form is sent home before early release days with the ordering deadline date to return the form.

Charge Policy
All students have a food service account that functions like a debit account. Turn in cash or check payments to the office.  Please make all checks payable to the Green Mountain School District.  The student's debit account cannot accommodate charges.  Students must have money in their account to cover the cost of a milk only purchase..

Food Accommodations
The Battle Ground food service department will make every effort to accommodate all students with special needs or food allergies.  The food service department must be provided a written recommendation or diagnosis from a licensed physician if the child has a disability.
