On Monday, Aug. 1, we are launching a new system for you to access school menus and other information on the district Food and Nutrition programs.
New Foods And Nutrition, Free and Reduced Meals System
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.
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.
MMSD is using the service School Café to connect families to MMSD School Nutrition. Creating an account is quick and easy and will offer access to school menus, account balance, payment options, and the ability to apply and see the status of your free and reduced lunch application.
Here is what you need to do:
- Create your account on School Café. You will need your students school ID number to create an account. This can be found in Infinite Campus by clicking "today" in the in the left navigation bar within Infinite Campus.
- Log back in to your School Café account
- Access school menus, account balance, payment options and the free and reduced lunch application
