The Child Nutrition team works hard to provide high quality, affordable, nutritionally balanced meals that our students enjoy, in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Our team is trained in safe food handling and is proud of our excellent rating with the Allegan County Health dept.
Please contact us if your student has special dietary needs. We will work with your health provider to make all food substitutions needed for your child's health.
Each family should receive a copy of The Lunch Line application for free or reduced priced meals. Easy directions are in English and Spanish. An application must be renewed by the end of September each year to continue to receive benefits.
If your family uses Food Stamps, you may be automatically approved for free meals through agency records. In that case you will receive a letter of confirmation. Each year 3% of all applicants will be asked to verify their income with check stubs or other proof.
You can apply for free meals on line at www.lunchapp.com. This is quick & easy to do and the results will be sent directly to my office. No one else will see the application. Your privacy is important to us. If you complete a paper form, please return it in an envelope or stapled shut.
Your student is important to us and will be treated respectfully, as are all customers. Each qualified student helps the Child Nutrition's and the school's budget. Many grants and funds are tied directly to the number of our school's free & reduced students. So please take a little time and fill out the form on line or on paper if you think your family qualifies. OR save it with your student handbook in case your financial situation changes later in the year.
Applications are accepted throughout the year. Extra forms are available in each school office and in the kitchens. All students who qualify for reduced priced meals will get breakfast at no cost. Please support our breakfast program. Thank you for your support!
