Lunch Program and Menu

Food Service Program Information for 2023-2024
Menu and Mealtimes:

Students are offered a choice of the three daily entrees which are: main entree, deli sandwich or sun butter and jelly sandwich with cheese stick. All entrees come with whatever vegetables and fruit are being offered that day.

Educational Benefits:

Child Nutrition Services will review applications on a timely basis; however, it may take 7-10 days for an application to be reviewed. A response will be sent to the parents/guardian by email or standard mail. Please save this letter as proof of benefits for other school programs. Benefits from the previous school year will be carried over for 30 days starting on the first day of the next school year. Application may be completed at any time throughout the year; however, any family that has not reapplied within the first 30 days will be changed to full-priced meals until a new application is received to determine meal eligibility. This is important for Meal reimbursement from the state and federal government. Families receiving MFIP, Food Stamps or FDPIR will be directly certified by the State of Minnesota to receive free meals and may not need to complete an application. Payment will be required for any meals purchased prior to the approval of the application as well as any snack milks, second milks, milk with a cold lunch or second entrees.

In 2014, Minnesota was the second state to pass into law that all children who qualify for free or reduced priced meals will receive meals for free. Minnesota continues to lead with these efforts to eliminate childhood hunger and ensure that we provide children the food they need to be successful.
