The United States Department of Agriculture is allowing schools to provide meals for the 2021-22 School Year through a provision of the National School Lunch Program called the Seamless Summer Option.  Our school has chosen to use this waiverwhich enables us to provide 
meals free of charge for all K-12 students.  No application is required to receive this free meal benefit.

However, your child(ren) may qualify for additional benefits such as reduced fees or the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) which is a Federal temporary emergency nutrition benefit that is loaded onto electronic cards for families to purchase food.  At public schools, your application also helps the school qualify for education funds and discounts.

If you have qualified for Free or Reduced-Price Meals in the past, or believe you may qualify this year, please complete the attached meal application.

 A  LA CARTE ITEMS:  Extra milk, second entrees, and other a la carte items are charged separately.  Remember that our food service program is a pre-pay program.  Please reference the Unpaid Meal Charges & Debt Collection Procedures for more information.

PAYMENTS:  Cash and Check Payments may be turned into any office at school, or done online through the Online Payments Quick Link on the Home Page. 


JMC ACCESS:  Parents/Guardians of St. Clair students can view their child’s food service account balance on the school website through their JMC Parent Login.


PRESCHOOL LUNCHES:  Preschool lunches do not qualify for the above waiver, so those will be charged at $2.55 each.


SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS:  Students requiring dietary modifications must have the attached form completed by their medical provider and returned to the Food Service Director.  

LACTOSE-FREE MILK:  Students requiring special milk must have the attached form completed by their parent/guardian and returned to the Food Service Director.

BACKPACK and POWER PACK FOOD PROGRAM:  These are free programs providing students in grades K-8 with weekend food packs containing breakfast, lunch, and a snack for each day off of school.  As of right now, food packs will be delivered weekly directly to a student's backpack while they are at lunch or on break.  Sign-up today to give your child an added boost of nutrition!
