Welcome to LCMCS Nutrition Services. A nutrition program is an important part of each student’s school day. Unfortunately, losing our commercial kitchen and the space to store, prep and cook nutritious meals limits our options and means our nutrition program will look completely different this year.

Please plan for your child(ren) to pack and bring a nutritious lunch and extra snack if needed to school every day for at least the first two weeks.

School lunch is available to all students. Starting on Monday, September 18th, school lunch will be offered daily Monday-Thursday to students who pre-ordered. Lunch is free of charge for those qualifying for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

Pre-Order Lunches using the Order Form tab above. 

National School Lunch Program (NSLP) eligibility is not required to participate in the school lunch program. However, we strongly encourage ALL families to complete a confidential NSLP application. Even if you feel that you would not be eligible or qualify, having this demographic data allows us to apply for additional state and federal funding. Completion of the application is also required in order to receive a discount on any school-based fees or expenses

Things to know about LCMCS Nutrition Program:

  • LCMCS strives to provide wholesome, nutritional meals to our students.  When available, ingredients are sourced from local farmers.
  • Lunch will offer five food components (grain, protein, fruit, vegetable, and fluid milk).
  • For students qualifying for NSLP free/reduced lunch, they must take a reimbursable lunch that contains at least three different food components, one of which is ½ cup fruit or vegetable.
  • All lunches will need to be pre ordered and paid for in advance. 
  • We will no longer be able to accommodate dietary/lifestyle preferences for those who do not have a medical diagnosis.  A student who requires this accommodation will need documentation from their medical provider in order to create a 504 plan for educational support.  Please email Liana Oram (loram@lcmcs.org) for assistance with this process.
