Lunch is an important part of the school day. Holy Trinity Catholic School cafeterias offer nutritious prepared lunches at each of our three campuses. Free and reduced meals are available for eligible students at all three of our Holy Trinity Campuses. This benefit is offered through a federally funded lunch program. More details about this program are presented below.
Please see the school lunch menu below. If parents prefer, students are welcome to bring lunch from home in a secure bag or lunch box. Students may also purchase a la carte items in our cafeterias.
Import Lunch Information
ALTOONA , HOLLIDAYSBURG, & MIDDLE SCHOOL
All three school campus locations ( Altoona, Hollidaysburg, & Middle School) participate in a federally funded lunch program and the Healthy Hungry Free Kids Act. In the operation of the lunch program, no child will be discriminated against because of race, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), color, national origin, age, or disability. If you believe you have been discriminated against, please write to the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C. 20250. We are working on having our Hollidaysburg site on board with a federal program sometime during this school year. We will operate it as a federal lunch program as closely as we can.
Free and reduced meals are available for eligible students. An application is sent home in the family folder at the beginning of the year and in subsequent emails with the link to apply online. An application is also available anytime upon request through the business office: 814-942-7835.
Menus are sent home in the family folder via email each month and will also be available on the Holy Trinity Website.
Lunch count will be taken in homeroom each morning. If your student is late, he/she must report to the office to request a lunch. If it is after 9:00am he/she will not be able to order an alternate lunch kit at this time, but can still order the main menu item.

At the end of the year, a statement will go home. Any child who will not be returning to Holy Trinity can request a refund of any monies or sign a paper noting that they are giving the monies left over to an “angel account” to help students who can not pay their lunch accounts. If any money is left over in an account and the owner has not picked it up, we will turn it over to the PA Treasury for unclaimed property. Reduced students who have money left in their lunch account will have their balance returned. Any money left in those accounts returning to Holy Trinity, will be rolled over into the next school year. Any negative amount will also be rolled over for 1 year to collect. Delinquent accounts will need paid ASAP.
Parents/guardians are urged to create a free account on myschoolaccount.com which will enable them to pay for their child’s meals and view their child’s balance, purchasing history, and payment history. The site will also allow parents/guardians to establish an account balance notification threshold for each of their children. Once the account balance falls below the established amount, myschoolaccount.com will automatically send the parents/guardians an e-mail notice. To sign up for this, you will need your Student’s ID which will be on your student’s lunch account statement. A statement will be emailed to all before school begins.
Myschoolaccount charges a small fee to pay for lunches using your bank accounts and credit cards.
Payments also can be made to the school campus offices. Please make checks payable to “Holy Trinity Cafeteria”, specify which campus, place in an envelope marked “Lunch Money” and label the envelope with your child’s name on it. If you are placing money in more than one child’s account, please record how much each child should be credited with. Each campus has its own cafeteria account. Please do not write one check for 2 students at 2 different campuses.
Any returned check, will have a $20.00 return check fee added to your lunch account.
As a courtesy, the cafeteria will email monthly lunch statements. The supplied email address on your student’s school application will be used. Only one email address can be used.
Free and reduced meals are available for eligible students at Holy Trinity’s Altoona & Hollidaysburg Campus and Middle School. This benefit is offered through a federally funded lunch program, and parents must complete required paperwork in order for their children to participate. Please inquire about this at your child’s school office. In the operation of the lunch program, no child will be discriminated against because of race, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), color, national origin, age, or disability. If you believe you have been discriminated against, please write to the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C.
