What's For Lunch

Children need healthy meals to learn. MMSD offers healthy meals every school day. All of our menus in the USDA program are designed to meet USDA nutritional standards. Each menu is analyzed weekly, evaluating it using eight specific nutritional targets.

School Café connects families to MMSD School Nutrition. Creating an account is quick and easy. Gain access to school menus, account balance, and payment options, as well as apply and see the status of your free and reduced lunch application.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. Create your account on School Café
  2. Log back in to your School Café account
  3. Access school menus, account balance, payment options and the free and reduced lunch application

As we all prepare for September, MMSD wants to make you aware of a significant change that may impact the families in our community. During the pandemic, MMSD received federal aid that allowed all students to eat school meals free of charge. These funds are no longer available. As a result, MMSD will revert to pre-pandemic practices of charging for breakfast and lunch.

Breakfast costs $1.45 in Elementary Schools; $1.70 in Middle and High Schools. Lunch costs $2.80 in Elementary Schools; $3.20 in Middle and $4.00 High Schools. The reduced price is $0.40 for lunch. Your child(ren) may qualify for free or reduced-price meals if your household income falls within the limits on the Federal Income Chart

All families are encouraged to complete an application for free and reduced meals (educational benefits). Families who qualify could receive additional benefits - such as discounted, waived or reduced fees for sports, activities, MSCR programs, and more. Even if you don’t qualify for benefits, completed applications directly impact school district funding.

If you need any assistance in filling out the free and reduced application, please call your school office or the Food & Nutrition Office at 608-204-4001. Our Office hours are 6:30am - 3:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Please go to the link provided to create your account at your earliest convenience. We look forward to seeing you all in fall 2022!
