The Hanover Public School District takes part in the National School Meal Program and nutritious meals are served every school day. Local fresh fruits and vegetables are served daily from various local vendors. Milk choices are served with every meal. The Hanover Public School District Food Service Program offers a nutritious breakfast and lunch daily for all students. The menus are provided on our webpage to students and parents. Menus are always subject to change.

HPSD cafeteria is now on Twitter! Please follow us @HPSD_CAFETERIA to see fun nutrition facts, menu changes and other interesting cafeteria topics.

The district does participate in the Free & Reduced Lunch and Breakfast Program. Again, families that have children attending a public school district should apply for free or reduced price school meals through the National School Lunch Program online using the Internet. This can be done by using any computer or smart-phone or by going to the new, user friendly site www.paschoolmeals.com . The new site will allow parents to view the approved benefits letter and print it if needed during the school year. This letter is needed to apply for the special Comcast Internet Pricing for those who participate in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program. If you have any questions about the program, now or throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact the district for assistance.

HPSD Cafeteria is pleased to offer an online option for families to pay for student lunches. Our Nutrition Services Department accepts payments for school meals through the www.parentonline.net online payment service. The www.Parentonline.net offers a secure transaction gateway that allows online payments as a means of adding money to your child’s meal account. Credit or debit cards can be used. IMPORTANT: The district participates with parentonline.net to provide parents/guardians the opportunity to view their child’s account 247, get reminder emails, automatic payment set-up and a parent online support hotline! Setting up and viewing their account is Free. Making a payment online to their account is optional with a small convenience fee.
