    The school system shall operate a lunch program in each school that complies with the provisions of the school policy on physical activity and nutrition (ADF) and the Wellness Plan referred to therein. The School Committee shall approve the prices set for school lunches.

    As required for participation in the National School Lunch Program, the Sharon Public Schools will provide to students “Type A” hot lunches and free and reduced-price lunches and/or milk as needed. No child whom a teacher believes is improperly nourished will be denied a free lunch or other food simply because proper application has not been received from his/her parents or guardians.
