Food Service Plan | 21-22

      • Student meals are available at NO COST for all District 25 students for the entire school year.  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the USDA has provided funding to allow school districts to serve all students at no charge.  


        How does my student access school lunch?
        • Students will be asked if they would like a school lunch in the morning.
        • At lunch, students are able to select their lunch choice:
                    Elementary Schools:  Hot choice or a cold lunch choice
                    Middle Schools:  Multiple options daily
        • Students will receive a lunch bag with fruit, veggies, and the option of either 1% white or chocolate skim milk.

        If your child chooses to bring a lunch from home, they are welcome to take the fruit, veggies and/or milk at no charge.  Return carts are available at all schools for any foods that students choose not to consume (wrapped products only) to help control food waste. 
         
        Due to food supply constraints, items listed on the menu may not be available to serve as stated. However, there will always be a meal available for each student that wishes to join us for lunch.
         
         
        The 2022-2023 applications to waive meal costs will be available soon.
