Welcome to LCMCS Nutrition Services.  School lunch will be provided daily.  In order to adhere to current ODE/OHA guidelines, this year’s lunch will be a simplified nutritional offering.  We ask that all new and returning students complete the National School Lunch Program Application for the 2020-2021 school year – even if you do not plan on utilizing the program – as this information benefits the school in obtaining additional federal funding. You can find information about how to access this application below.

Meal Prices (2020-2021)

  • All Students – $3.50
  • Free/Reduced – no charge
  • Milk (for home lunch) – $ .50

A meal includes milk, main entree, grain, veggies and fruit.
  2. Students bringing lunch from home may purchase a la carte milk ($.50 each) 
  3. Students not qualifying for meal benefits will need to bring a meal from home or provide funds via SchoolCafe to purchase meals.

If your student has a food allergy, intolerance, or other dietary preference, please be sure that you indicate this when registering your student for school. You may view or update the information provided for your student through the parent portal.

While we try our best to accommodate food allergies, we are not able to accommodate all food and lifestyle choices. We do offer Gluten Free alternatives for those with allergies. If you need accommodations other than Gluten Free, please contact cjohnson@lcmcs.org to discuss whether we can accommodate your student’s needs.
