WELCOME TO FOOD SERVICES!
To provide appealing and nutritious foods in a safe, healthy environment that will make a significant contribution to the general well-being of each student to afford them the opportunity to participate in the education process.
* The USDA will NOT be continuing the Universal Free Meal Program for the 2022-2023 school year. Students will be required to pay for both breakfast and lunch unless approved through the application process for Free/Reduced priced meals. *** Please submit a Free/Reduced Application prior to the start of school to Jennifer Wilinsky, JWilinsky@fleetwoodasd.org. The applications are located in the forms section and you can also apply online through www.schoolcafe.com.
A well-balanced Breakfast and Lunch are offered daily in each of the four schools. We follow a traditional menu planning with Offer vs. Serve. As mandated by the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program, each breakfast and lunch offered includes all the required components: (1) serving of protein, (1) serving of grains, (2) servings of fruits and/or vegetables, and (1) serving of milk. A meal MUST have at least 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable and a minimum of three total items to be a complete meal or ala carte prices will be charged.
IMPORTANT MENU UPDATE
Last minute menu changes are occurring frequently and are out of our control due to nationwide food supply chain issues. Menus on website may not reflect these changes. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. If you have any questions regarding your school's menu, feel free to reach out to the Food Service Director.

All Fleetwood schools use a point-of-sale system. This technology allows us to provide debit accounts for purchases and increases the speed of food service to students. Ala Carte Items CAN NOT be purchased if there is a NEGATIVE balance in the child's account. Money can be deposited into the account via cash, check or on-line at http://www.schoolcafe.com. There is a convenience fee for paying on-line. Parents will be able to set-up low balance reminders within the Schoolcafe.com account.
Parents are able to monitor meal and snack purchases within www.Schoolcafe.com. Each child's account statement is updated continuously so that the information is current. Any money left in your child(ren)'s account at the end of the year will automatically roll over to the next year. All accounts will follow your child until they graduate from Fleetwood. Upon graduation, any balances will be transferred to siblings within the district or refunded, by check, to the parent/guardian. The Account transfer/refund form must be completed and submitted to the Food Service Department Office.
