    School Meals
    A balanced, nutritious diet is essential for student's maximum learning ability. The district's Nutrition Services department assists in that process. 
    Our kitchen staff serve familiar foods that are popular with students, while introducing a variety of new foods. 

    Paying For Meals
    We ask each Student who uses the school meal program to pay for their meals in advance. Checks are to be made payable to MCS.
    Please make sure your student’s account is always in credit.  This year we will only allow students to charge up to 2 meals.
    MealTime Online is offered for parents to make debit/credit card deposits/payments into their student's meal account.  

    MealTime Online – Meal Account Deposits, enables you to prepay and make payments for your student’s school lunch account, conveniently, safely and securely.

    You can also view your student’s account activity, including payments, current balance and a detailed history of meal and food item purchases.
