St. Joseph University School Wellness Policies on Physical Activity and Nutrition

St. Joseph University School is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.

Students are engaged in a comprehensive physical education that encourages movement and student participation.

A breakfast and hot lunch program is available to all students daily. SJUS participates in the Federal Free Lunch Program. Applications are available through the school office (716-835-7395).

To Achieve these Policy Goals:

  • Meals served through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs will:
  • Be appealing and attractive to children;
  • Be served in clean and pleasant settings;
  • Meet, at a minimum, nutrition requirements established by local, state, and federal statues and regulations;
  • Offer a variety of fruits and vegetables;
  • Serve only low-fat (1%) and fat-free milk and nutritionally-equivalent non-dairy alternatives (to be defined by USDA); and
  • Ensure that all are whole grain.
