Healthy concessions

Alexandria Area High School has installed a vending machine in the main commons with healthier choices.

(Alexandria, MN)  Have you ever forgotten to pack something to eat for your after school activity?  Alexandria Public Schools are making it easy for you. Food & Nutrition Services is making available healthy foods to students after school hours. Items sold will include healthy beverages and sports drinks, fruit and vegetable cups, protein packs, sub style and gourmet sandwiches, along with granola bars, popcorn, etc.

Alexandria Public Schools started their vending program on Feb. 4th. Students are able to purchase items using their lunch PIN number (along with their student ID number) right from the machine. Any student who currently has ala carte privileges limited or denied, will only be able to purchase items if they use cash. The machine is located adjacent to the lunchroom, by Perks Plus.
