2021-2022 announcements

Concerning P-EBT cards from DHS:
A recent letter released by DHS informs parents who believe they should be getting a P-EBT card for their child, to call the school.  
DHS told us that they re-loaded money on last year’s cards.  So if your child received a card last year, and you still have last year’s card, check the balance.  If you threw away the card, you will need to contact DHS for a new one.
We also found out that they could still be mailing out cards until 10/15/21, so you might wait until after that date to start making calls.
We will be glad to assist in any way possible, but basically all we can tell you is what your child’s free/reduced status currently is.   We do not know the status of P-EBT cards. 

A few housekeeping items for the start of the 2021-2022 school year: 
****** NOTICE ******
Parents we changed vendors and some items are different from what we served in the past years.  If your child has any food allergies please check with your child's school cafeteria manager for possible allergens.

• If you DO NOT want your child purchasing any ala carte items/Smart Snacks (approved by USDA) through the lunch line, please e-mail Kim at [email protected] so we can flag their account.

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. 


Questions? Call the Child Nutrition Department at 376-7317.
