Lunch/Breakfast Program Overview


Under the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 and the National School Lunch Program, the required components of a "meal" include: fluid milk, meat/meat alternate, two different fruits and/or vegetables, and breads/grains. On behalf of the District, Aramark serves all meals based on the USDA Healthier Choice Guidelines. The NSLP is a Food Based Menu program with prices as follows:


Lunch/Breakfast Meal prices (full-pay):

  • Elementary: $2.55 per meal*
  • Middle: $2.60 per meal*
  • High: $2.60 per meal*
    (*Meal MUST INCLUDE: fluid milk, meat/meat alternate, two different fruits and/or vegetables, and breads/grains)
  • Breakfast: $1.60 (all grades where breakfast is served)

A la Carte Prices (all students):

  • Milk: $.40 -- white (when purchased separately from meals)
    $.50 -- flavored (when purchased separately from meals)
  • Other items (besides milk): prices vary

What is a Meal?

The $2.55/elementary or $2.50/secondary meal that is available to all students includes: fluid milk, meat/meat alternate, two different fruits and/or vegetables, and breads/grains.


A second reimbursable meal is 100% chargeable to all free/reduced students. They are only entitled to one free/reduced price reimbursable meal. Single items are considered a la carte and do not qualify as a meal for free/reduced. The student’s account will be charged for all a la carte items.



Payments can be made on a student’s lunch account by sending cash or check (payable: IPSD 204) to the school office, or on-line at The District encourages all families to register at no charge on where you can sign up for automatic alerts and view your student’s lunch account. For a small processing fee payments can also be made directly on their account.


Student Account Balances


Students will be able to charge NO MORE than five lunches. Charge limits are equal to the price of their meal. Milk charge limits will be the amount equivalent to the dollar amounts listed below.


  • Paid Meals – Secondary = $12.50; elementary= $12.25
  • Reduced Meals - $2.00


If student accounts are not paid in full before the maximum charge limit is reached, their lunch card will be pulled and lunch privileges denied. Parents are responsible for ensuring their child’s lunch account is up to date.


Free And Reduced Meals


Under the National School Lunch and Breakfast Program, those eligible for free/reduced meals receive either a free meal or reduced meal of $.40/meal. Milk is included with a meal. The District is no longer on the Illinois Free Milk Program, thus any milk without a meal is charged the a la carte milk price**, regardless of their eligibility status. At this time, breakfast is not served at all schools. 


In order to qualify, families must submit a Free/Reduced Priced Meals Application. The current application is available at the link below. Families who do not have access to online information can request a paper copy of the application at the school.
