Nutrition Requirements

Upsala Food Service participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Each meal consists of

  • 1-2 ounces of meat/meat alternative

  • 2+ servings of fruits and vegetables

  • 1 serving of grain/bread

  • 8 oz of milk

Serving sizes are those recommended in the USDA Food Guide Pyramid and the Health Hunger Free Kids Act.

Offer vs Serve

The goal of Offer versus Serve (OVS) is to reduce food waste in the school's meal program while permitting students to decline foods they do not intend to eat.

At breakfast, students are offered three required food components in at least the minimum required amounts. The components at breakfast are: grains (with optional meats/meat alternates allowed); juice/fruit/vegetable; and milk. Under OVS, students are offered at least four food items and must select at least three food items, one of which must be ½ cup of fruit and/or vegetable.

At lunch, students are offered all five required food components in at least the minimum required amount, but they only need to choose three (or more) food items based on their preferences instead of having to take some of every food item. One selection must be at least 1/2 cup or fruit and/or vegetable. Students are, however, encouraged to take all of the food items offered because it provides a balanced meal. 


The school lunch program is required to offer milk as one of the components of lunch. A choice of skim white & skim chocolate is offered.

Special Dietary Needs

Lactose free milk will be provided to students at no extra charge upon the written request of a parent or guardian. Other special diet requests can be made upon submitting a Special Diet Statement.
