We strive to offer a variety of fresh fruits and veggies for our students on a daily basis. Students may select 2 fruits for their complete breakfast and 1 fruit and/or 1-2 vegetables for their complete lunch.

In order for the cafeteria to charge students for the breakfast and/or lunch price, each child must have the following items on their lunch tray when they arrive at the register:

BREAKFAST: Student may take 3-4 items, at least one item must be a fruit/juice (they may have 2 fruits at breakfast).
LUNCH: Student may take 3-5 items, at least one item must be a fruit or vegetable (they may take 2 vegetables at lunch).

If students do not meet the minimum requirements listed above, they will be charged a la carte pricing. PLEASE TELL YOUR CHILD MILK IS NOT REQUIRED AT BREAKFAST OR LUNCH!

I do recommend everyone sign up for a PayPAMS account. With PayPAMS you can monitor your child’s purchases as well as their balances.

Please feel free to contact if Miki ([email protected] or 904/547-8396) with any concerns or questions you may have.

Please Note

St. Johns County School District Please contact the Food Service Managers at your child's school if you have specific menu questions.

The Food & Nutrition Services Department is experiencing unprecedented issues with the supply chain. These supply chain issues are causing us to alter posted menus with little to no notice.

The supply chain issues are caused by multiple factors including labor and material shortages across all phases of production, transportation, manufacturing and distribution.

We are working closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure both the food and supply items needed to support our program and offer the level of service we are accustomed to providing.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
