Fort Knox Community Schools Food Service

Fort  Knox Food Services
The Food and Nutrition Services Department  for Fort Knox Schools, through participation in the USDA National School Lunch  and Breakfast Programs, strives to provide a service to actively address and  meet the needs l of all our students. The department maintains compliance with  all USDA rules, regulations and goals in each aspect of its operation. School  menus are planned to maintain compliance with USDA and to include a variety of  new and favorite food products. Issues affecting students are always  approached with sensitivity and caution including but not limited to food  allergies and sensitivity. 

Students will be offered a large variety of  fresh fruits and vegetables, foods made from Whole Grain, and low fat  cheese/milk products. This initiative is in recognition of the Healthy  Hunger Free kid's act of 2010.

Food  Service Policies

Competitive  Foods Regulation
Selling  food items to students in competition with the school breakfast or lunch  program is prohibited on school campus during the school day until 30 minutes  after the last lunch is done serving.  


Local  Wellness Policy DoDEA America’s Schools  believe that children and youth who begin each day as healthy individuals can  learn more and learn better and are more likely to complete their formal  education.
 

Meal Charge Policy 

     
  • Sponsors/Parent are notified by email or by  reminder letter sent with your child/ren when the child has a low or negative  balance.
  •  
  •  Sponsors are strongly encouraged to  occasionally check their student's accounts to prevent accumulating a negative  balance.
  •  
  •  Failure to receive notification does  not excuse the Sponsor of his/her responsibility to maintain a positive balance  for their students account. Please keep contact information up to  date at the schools (to include e-mail address, phone numbers and home  address).
  •  
  • Students are allowed to charge up to 7 meals  on their accounts. After 7 charged meals, sponsors will be notified via email  and phone calls.
  •  
  • Payments must be made to satisfy these  accounts within 7 working days of notification. If the request for payment is  ignored, a Wage Garnishment will be initiated through the Military Pay Center.  A $50.00 processing fee for each student account will be added to the amount  owed.
  •  
  • Adults are not allowed to charge at any time.

    Returned checks

     
  • Upon receipt of the first returned check, a  $50 service charge will be added to the amount of the check written, and the  returned check must be paid in cash and picked up in the Food and Nutrition  Services Office. If a second check is returned, all check-writing privileges  are suspended for six months. Should a wage garnishment need to be filed to  redeem a returned check, check-writing privileges are suspended  indefinitely. 

  Refunds

     
  • Refunds are available at the schools for a limited amount  only. If your child will receive a larger refund, they must be requested  filling out a Refund Request Form.
