Healthy School Meals for All Program
Beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, Stargate has chosen to participate in the state Healthy School Meals for All (HSMA) program.This optional program is open to ALL K-12 students. In order to bring this program to Stargate students, Stargate has joined the Charter Choice Collaborative (SFA).The Charter Choice Collaborative will act as our SFA (School Food Authority) to administer the process of reporting and processing federal and state meal reimbursements to the school.
All students at Stargate will have access to free healthy, nutritious school meals beginning in the 2023-24 school year thanks to the Healthy School Meals for All program.. Stargate is very excited to participate in the program. Here is some additional information and a few important reminders about what this means for our school and families. Please read our full detailed letter to the community, dated July 21, 2023.
Please fill out the CharterChoice (SFA) Combination Form (Online Meal Benefits Application/Family Economic Data Survey). While meals will be provided for free to all Stargate students through Healthy School Meals for All, it’s important for us to continue gathering this information to receive full access to available federal funds that support nutritional programs at your school.
We encourage all families to complete the Combination Form online for the 2023-24 school year. (Paper forms are available by request at the school.) This is an optional form but by providing this information, you will help our district access all available funds to cover the cost of meals, and other nutritional programs for students. Families who fill out the form MAY qualify to receive discounted school fees, class materials, bus passes, utilities support and more.
Stargate has contracted with My Kids Lunch at the hot lunch provider. Please see the welcome letter for a detailed description of the ordering process and policies.
