All of our meals meet state and federal requirements and are well-balanced, full of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and are low in fat and sodium. They are also age-appropriate and prepared to maximize student enjoyment.

    All District 65 schools serve breakfast and lunch. Families who believe they qualify for free or reduced-priced meals are encouraged to complete an application for benefits. Applications are available year-round.
