Offer Versus Serve

Mustang Public Schools will be providing more options for elementary and intermediate students. "Offer versus Serve" is a program approved by the USDA that allows students to refuse as many as two items of the five items that make up a school lunch (or one of four items at breakfast) as long as what they do select includes a half-cup of fruit, half-cup of vegetables or a fruit juice. As room allows, Mustang's school cafeterias will be offering a variety of fruits and vegetables for students to select from.

With the Offer Versus Serve program, students are no longer required to take milk or a milk substitute. Students can select a juice and two to four other items to make up their reimbursable meal. Allowing students to have more control of what is on their plate will be a bonus not only for the students, but should also lead to less food being wasted.

In addition to students being able to refuse one item at breakfast or two items at lunch, more entree options will be offered for both meals. For breakfast at Mustang's elementary schools and intermediate centers there will be two entrée choices every morning for breakfast: the main entrée OR cereal and toast. For lunch, there will be three entrée choices every day for lunch.
