Food Service

The Nutrition Group will provide the food service program. Meal service begins on Wednesday, September 8th and will include both breakfast and lunch. The school district participates in the USDA National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, which means that all meals meet or exceed the guidelines and regulations for the School Meals Initiative for Healthy Children. There also will be ala carte foods available during lunch.

School Breakfast

Breakfast is offered daily (except the first day of school) for all students from 7:30 AM-7:55 AM in both buildings. Studies show that school breakfast can improve test scores, make students more alert in class, and improve classroom behavior.

Monthly Menus

Interactive monthly menus are available electronically. The menu is subject to change due to conditions beyond our control.

Free/Reduced Price Meal Applications

Even though the district will be operating under the Seamless Summer Option which allows all students to receive a free meal, the district still needs families to submit a free and reduced application as other districts funding is based on the information gathered on the application. If you have an Internet connection available, you may find it more convenient to complete the application electronically using LunchApp.com. Click Here

You are encouraged to use this secure online application method as it will speed up the processing of your application.

If families would prefer to print a paper copy of the application for free and reduced meals they can do so by clicking on this link or they may pick up a copy in the main office of either of the school buildings.

If a student qualified for a free or reduced-price meal at the end of last school year, they will automatically receive a free or reduced-price meal for the first 30 operating days of the school year. An application must be completed for each family wishing to receive free or reduced-price meals annually.

Meal Magic Point of Sale® System

Whiteford Schools uses a computerized sale system for breakfast and lunch sales, which greatly benefits students, parents and staff alike. Parents are reminded that the most efficient use of the Meal Magic® POS system is to put money on their child's account on a regular basis to insure sufficient funds available for meal sales. Also, account balances can be viewed 24 hours a day/7 days a week online.  For specific cafeteria meal payment click HERE .

Should you wish to set spending limits, set restrictions on purchases or have any questions regarding the POS system, please feel free to contact Marisa Tebbe-Cousino at 734.856.1443, ext. 106 or via EMAIL.

Wellness Statement

The Board recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well-being of the District's students. Furthermore, research concludes that there is a positive correlation between a student's health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. Moreover, schools can play an important role in the developmental process by which students establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks through the schools' meal programs, by supporting the development of good eating habits, and by promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school.  See Wellness Policy for additional information.
