Free Breakfast and Lunch will begin Monday, September 14th, 2020
The USDA has approved school meal waivers through December 2020 that allow school districts to serve free breakfast and lunch meals to all children, regardless of a family’s economic status. All children, age 18 years and under, that reside in the Hanover Public School District, are eligible to receive free school meals at the District starting immediately.
We are still encouraging families who feel they may qualify for free or reduced-price meals to apply so they can become eligible and begin using the program when the free school meal waiver ends. Please visit https://www.schoolcafe.com/HanoverPublicSD to fill out an application for the free or reduced-price meals program.
In-School Student Meals
All students attending an in-person school setting will be able to receive a free breakfast and lunch each school day at their school building during normal meal times.
In addition, Hybrid A/B students can pre-order meals to be picked up after school in the cafeteria on their in person day to be consumed on their remote day. Those meals must be pre-ordered through the students FireFly account. Order forms are available on the LUNCH tab of the student account.

If you would like to pre-order a Breakfast/Lunch combo meal for your student, you can do that through FireFly. Click on the LUNCH tab. You will see the days that are available to purchase meals for your child.
Middle School and High School students are responsible for going to the cafeteria to pick up the next day’s meals at the end of the school day before. For example: If your student has an Alpha schedule, he/she would pick up meals at the end of the day on Monday to be eaten on Tuesday. If your child is Beta scheduled he/she would pick up meals Tuesday to be eaten on Wednesday.
Students that are doing 100% remote learning may also order meals. Those should be pre-ordered on FireFly and can be picked up at your school office between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm.
Only pre-ordered meals will be accepted. Meal requests must be ordered before the deadline of 12:00 midnight.
All meals will be charged to your student’s cafeteria account. You may pay for meals on line at www.schoolcafe.com or by sending cash or check in an envelope with your child’s name and student ID #.

The Hanover Public School District is proud to participate in the National School Meal Program and nutritious meals are served each school day. Meals provided in the breakfast and lunch program at Hanover Public School District comply with the federal nutrition standards under the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act. School meals offer students a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, proteins, grains and milk. They meet strict limits on fat, calories and portion size. Now is a great time to encourage your child to eat meals at school!
Menus are provided on the HPSD webpage for students and parents. Menus are always subject to change.
We encourage families to apply for free or reduced priced school meals through the National School Lunch Program at www.paschoolmeals.com . If you are enrolled in the program, your privacy is protected by federal law. We use a PIN-code entry system in all of our cafeteria lines that insures no one knows who is getting a free or discounted meal. If you have any questions about the program, please contact the cafeteria for assistance.
Parents are encouraged to put money “on account” for their children for a smoother process during meal service and to avoid money being misplaced or lost. Parents can write a check to HPSD Food Services, send cash or make a payment on-line at the www.SchoolCafe.com website. Parents should set up an account that they can use to add money to their student accounts and monitor their student spending. This website offers parents/guardians the opportunity to view their child’s account at any time, set low balance reminder emails and set up automatic payments to their child’s accounts. In addition, there is also a support hotline should you have any questions or problems with your account. Setting up and viewing the account is Free. Making a payment online to your student account is optional and does have a small convenience fee.
Students that come to the cafeteria line to eat that have a negative balance will be provided with a reimbursable meal but will not be allowed to purchase any Extra, or Ala Carte Items. The student will be charged for the reimbursable meal that they are given.
