Nutritious and delicious student favorites will be provided at breakfast and lunch. At breakfast this includes one entrée, one fruit, one juice, and/or milk. At lunch this includes, one entrée, two vegetables, one fruit, and/or milk. These meals do NOT need to be pre-ordered. 
  • Meals will be accounted for using a variety of non-contact cashiering methods. 
  • Limited extra sale items will be available.
  • Meal Kits will still be available for virtual learners & community members at the MHS Curbside Pick-Up location on Wednesdays.

  • Meal kits still need to be pre-ordered online each week by Tuesday at 11:59PM
  • Even though all students will temporarily receive free meals, households are strongly encouraged to complete a Free & Reduced Meal Application. Once the extension of USDA waivers expires, students will be charged for their meals based on their meal eligibility status (free, reduced, or full pay). If there is an interruption in benefits or the household does not reapply, the household is responsible for payment of meals until the application is approved. 
    • Free & Reduced Meal Applications support the entire district!
  • A new application must be completed every school year. Visit to begin the online Free & Reduced Meal application.
