                       Our Mission

      The School Town of Munster Nutrition team is dedicated to offer every student the highest quality meals that are healthy, nutritious and enjoyable by friendly staff while meeting or exceeding USDA and Health Department expectations which enhance and support student educational achievements and wellness goals for lifelong success.

The School Year is coming to an end, and here are some important things you need to know about your students' meal account:

Meal Account Refunds: Students who graduate or withdraw from the corporation, with $10 or more left in their meal account must contact Food Services at 836-3204 by June 15, 2018 for a full refund.
If you have not contacted us by June 15, 2018, the student's account will be closed and the funds will no longer be available.
If you choose to transfer the funds to another student, please contact us at 836-3204.
All balances, positive or negative, will roll over to the following school year for all active students.

All "Charging" will end May 9, 2018.
Students of all grades MUST have a positive balance to use the account, or have cash for the day's purchases.
Any negative balances at the end of the school year can be subject to collections.
The Food Service Department is self-supporting and must operate in a fiscally responsible manner.

SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS

USDA has ruled that water or juice is no longer permitted as a milk substitution.  Lactose free, unflavored, fat free milk will be substituted.

USDA and the National School Lunch Program require that we have a doctor complete a Medical Statement form attached below. Meal substitutions, where possible, based on the dietary order will be made in the cafeteria.  Substitutions cannot be made without this form completed and signed by the student’s physician. 

Completed forms must be returned to the School Nurse’s Office or the Food Service Department.  We care about your child’s health and your help is vital in the lives of children with food allergies and/or disabilities.

Sincerely,
Food & Nutrition Services

The Medical Statement must be completed and submitted to food services before any meal substitutions can be made.
