A nutritious breakfast and lunch are served daily at all schools. A variety of choices is offered through a four-week menu cycle that meets the nutritional standards established by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.
The Mount Vernon Community School District uses the Nutrislice digital menu system. This system allows you to view nutrition and ingredient lists of all of your student’s breakfast and lunch meals. Nutrislice allows you to filter out foods with certain allergens by simply clicking on the allergen.
While the Nutrislice program provides valuable information regarding menu items in our lunch program, that information is only as accurate as the information that is provided to the District by the various manufacturers. Every caution should be taken when referring to the Nutrislice program to follow through with the District’s food service officials should your child be impacted by any significant allergies, including food allergies.
Breakfast & Lunch Prices
Breakfast and lunch prices, as set by the federal government, are $3.30 for middle school and high school students and $3.15 for elementary school students. Breakfast is $2.20 in all three buildings. Ala carte purchases are a separate cost from the lunch prices.
Free or Reduced Price Meals
Free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch meals are available to students of families meeting the income eligibility guidelines.
Families of middle school and high school students on the free or reduced-price meal plans will be charged and must pay for ala carte food items purchased. Ala carte items are food items that are normally separate from the school breakfast and lunch menu. If you do not want your student to purchase these extra charge ala carte items, please discuss this with your student and turn off this option in the dining system, Total Access.
