Good nutrition and regular physical activity before, during, and after the school day are strongly correlated with positive student outcomes. St. John the Baptist, in conjunction with the Plymouth School District Lunch program, offers students healthy, kid-friendly meals at affordable prices that support and promote good nutrition. A varied menu including many different fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and made from scratch items are offered.
FREE STUDENT MEALS In response to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, St. John the Baptist has elected to take part in the extended USDA National School Lunch Program’s Seamless Summer Option (SSO). This program enables us to provide FREE meals this fall for all students, whether they are attending school in person or via e-learning. Currently, the program runs until Dec. 22nd or until Federal funding runs out. Learn MoreLunch Program Information 2020-2021 September 2020 Lunch Menu
