Breakfast & Lunch
Our meal program is being provided by Sodexo Food Company. This group is a subsidiary of the West Allis School System Food Service. We are delighted to have the opportunity to bring their program into our community. Students may qualify for free or reduced breakfast and lunches through Direct Certification or by filling out an application. All meals must be ordered in advance.
Cost for Breakfast: $1.95 Reduced: $0.30
Cost for Lunch: $3.65 Reduced: $0.40
Meal Charge Policy
Students who have a negative balance in their account at the time of the meal service will be allowed to charge the meal for either breakfast, lunch or both. Student(s) will have a limit of 5 meals allowed to be charged before requiring payment of the debt. The lunch director will inform the student that they are out of money in their account. If payment has not been received after the verbal communication with the student, then an email will be sent home. If the payment still has not been received following verbal communication with the student and an email, a phone call home will be made as a reminder. If all these attempts have failed, an outstanding balance letter will be mailed to the household. A copy of the letter will also be forwarded to the principal. During the time that the student(s) are showing a negative balance, they will still receive a reimbursable meal meeting all DPI requirements.
How to Make a Payment
Please remember that the current negative balance must be paid as soon as possible. Stop by the school office between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday to pay by cash or a check. Cash or a check may also be sent to school with the student. Checks should be made payable to St. Gregory the Great School.
After the outstanding balance has been paid, it is recommended that all meals be prepaid. Pre-paying student’s meals are a simpler way of managing their account, and prevents negative balances.
How to Apply for Free and Reduced Price Meals
If you believe your student(s) may be eligible for free or reduced price meals, please submit an application. You may do this at any time during the school year. Applications are available in the school office.
Families must submit an application each year to be considered for free and reduced price meals. Even if your student(s) received free or reduced price meals last year, a new application must be submitted each year.
Families may apply (or reapply) for free or reduced price meals at any time during the school year.
