The price of a student lunch for the 2023-2024 school year is $3.10. The student meal includes an entree, fruit, vegetable, and milk. Milk only can be purchased for $.40.
To apply for a free or reduced lunch waiver based on need, please submit an application found here. Students that qualify for Free or Reduced lunch must receive a full meal in order for the lunch to be free. Ala Carte (snacks) or milk only are not included in the Free National School Lunch Program.
Ala Carte/Snack Line- JUNIOR HIGH ONLY
In addition to our daily lunch option, students at Minooka Junior High can also purchase additional snack items. The snack/ala carte lunch items at the Minooka Junior High are not free even if your child qualifies for the free National School Lunch Program. If you prefer that they do not have the option to utilize their ID to purchase ala carte/snack items, please contact Marguerite Rappaport at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your student would still be able to go through the snack line and purchase items using cash.
NEW: If your student's lunch account is greater than negative $10.00, they will not be able to use their ID to purchase items in the snack line. The account will automatically be switched to "deny ala carte/snack line". Once your balance is paid in full your student will have the ability to purchase snacks with their ID. Students always have the option of paying in cash.
