Providing high quality, nutritious choices to students

Beginning September 2023, all Minnesota K-12 students attending school in person will have one free breakfast and lunch available to them each academic school day due to the state’s recently passed Free School Meals for Kids bill. A la carte items outside of a complete meal will still incur a cost (milk will incur a cost unless taken as a part of a school meal).

We use MealViewer, an interactive menu that allows students and families to easily see nutrition (calories, fat, carbohydrates, etc.) and allergy information for meals served at school each day. In addition, families can create free MealViewer profiles for their students to better monitor dietary restrictions, identify food allergies, and more. Contact Colleen Fairbanks with questions about MealViewer.
