School Meal Program (SMP)
In the Japan District, the School Meal Program is operated by a School Food Authority (SFA) and is responsible for following the USDA regulations, guidelines and requirements of the SMP. While not the only SFA in the Pacific, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (The Exchange) is the largest provider of student meals on military installations. The Exchange also provides Free and Reduced-Price meals to students who qualify under Federal Guidelines. Additionally, in certain areas the school lunch program is run by the Navy Exchange (NEX) and the Marine Corps Community Service (MCCS) meal program.

Please see the listing below of what specific meal programs are offered in the Japan District, and which schools they apply to. 

The Exchange (AAFES)

Some school lunch programs in Japan, Korea, and Okinawa districts are managed by The Exchange.

School Lunch Menus are located on the webpage below:
