  • Food Service Unveils Menu System

    Posted by Kimberly Snyder on 8/21/2019 2:15:00 PM

    Hempfield School District's Food Services department has unveiled a new interactive school menu for the 2019-20 school year called Nurtislice!

    Access your school breakfast and lunch menus on Nutrislice via the district website or HSD mobile app. Nutrislice offers robust content that includes photos as well as nutritional and allergen information.

    The Food Service office will no longer print and send menus home with students. Should your student need a printed menu, please visit your school’s main office, or print a menu from the Nutrislice website.

    Please note: Families may apply for free or reduced price meals at any time during the school year. Every year, one family application must be completed.
    We encourage you to apply using the Hempfield EZ Meal app. This online process is fast and easy to follow, offering a step-by-step process that is confidential and allows for quicker approval processing.
    For more details, visit our free & reduced lunch page here.
