The North Allegheny School District has contracted with Metz Culinary Management for the food service operation for the 2021-2022 school year. Metz has provided the District with nutritious meals since 1998. In addition to the variety of healthy meals, Metz also conducts theme days and several promotions for the students each year.
School Lunch Program
Nutritious meals that emphasize quality and variety are available to students at every District school. Printable versions of monthly menus for the elementary program and the secondary program are available here. Students may make cafeteria purchases by utilizing the Point of Sale (POS) computerized debit system, which requires them to provide their Personal Identification Number (PIN).
Every NA student is assigned a six-digit PIN upon his/her enrollment. The PIN is used for two purposes. The first purpose is to verify student identity and reference important student information, like food allergies, dietary restrictions, and limitations on purchases established by parents. The second purpose is to subtract monies from student accounts that conveniently eliminate the need for students to pay with cash. All students have the option to pay by cash or with their PIN number.
USDA approves free meals for all students through the 2021-2022 school year. A free meal includes an entree, fruit(s), vegetable(s), and milk.
Payments may be sent directly to the student's school, with his/her PIN number clearly indicated on the check. Pre-printed envelopes for this purpose are available in each school office. Checks should be made payable to "NASD Cafeteria Fund". Questions regarding account balances or requests for patron participation reports may be directed to the Food Service Office at 724-934-7201.
The District also has an online payment system called PaySchools Central. To log in or for more information, visit payschoolscentral.com.
