School District 69, in conjunction with OrganicLife, offers a daily hot breakfast and lunch in each of its three elementary and middle schools and the Administration encourages your student to participate. At full-price, a student breakfast costs $1.45, a student lunch costs $3.00, and a carton of milk costs $0.60.

School District 69 strives to provide as much variety as possible in its menus while remaining within the constraints of the National School Lunch Program regulations. Current menus can be found here.

Free and Reduced Price Meals
School District 69 takes part in the National School Lunch Program and your child may qualify for Free or Reduced Price meals. The Free and Reduced Price Meal applications are available by clicking here. A paper copy may also be obtained from the District 69 Business Office. A new application must be submitted prior to each school year. Completed applications may be mailed to or dropped off at your student’s school or the District 69 Business Office.

In order to qualify as a meal under the National School Lunch Program, a breakfast must contain three (3) side dishes, one of which may or may not be a milk. A lunch must contain one (1) entrée and at least two (2) side dishes, one of which may or may not be a milk. If your child does not take the required servings at each meal, they will not qualify for a Free or Reduced Price meal and will be charged the full a la carte price for each item.

The District does not participate in the federally-funded Special Milk Program. Those students who qualify for Free or Reduced Price meals and do not take a qualified meal will be charged full price for milk.
