Our Mission

Food Service is a self-supporting, customer driven, department that provides nutritious food in a cost effective manner building healthy minds and bodies ready to learn.
Research has shown that there is an important, positive relationship between good nutrition and health, behavior and student learning. The Meridian School District participates in the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program and the USDA Food Distribution Program. United States Department of Agriculture regulations guide our program. The menus meet the USDA specifications based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans.

School Year 2020-2021

Meridian School District Food Service will be providing meals to students enrolled in the District, beginning Wednesday, September 2nd. After the first week, meals will be available each week on Mondays and Thursdays, however, during the week of September 7th, meals will be available Tuesday the 8th and Thursday the 10th due to the Labor Day holiday.

Meals are free to all children from the age of 2 to 18.

Similar to the meal program last spring, families will receive multiple days of meals each service day.
