Food Services

students enjoying lunch



The food services department provides a variety of healthy food choices to ensure a student’s readiness to learn. We are committed to providing high quality, freshly prepared, nutritious food, and personalized service to all students and staff.

Food Service welcomes every student to enjoy FREE & SAFE school meals.

FREE meals are offered to all SMSD students regardless if they are learning remote, hybrid or in person. This includes breakfast and lunch meals. Meals are funded entirely by USDA as part of their Summer Meals Program extension. These free meals will continue through the end of the school year. We encourage families to continue to apply for free and reduced meals. Qualifying may allow for other support through the district.

Students will receive their in-person meals at no cost during the days they are in school. Any extra ala carte purchases the students make will require money to be on their food service account.

Meals are prepared with the utmost of care to ensure each child's safety. The Food Service department and employees take food safety and the health of all students and staff seriously.  We continue to follow all health department food and COVID-19 guidelines including:

  • All employees wear masks
  • Gloves are worn and changed frequently
  • Proper handwashing followed
  • Acrylic shields used to ensure social distancing for the cashier and in food preparation areas
  • High touch areas disinfected regularly
  • All side dishes individually packaged
  • Entrees served to students upon request
  • Disposable compostable trays, individually wrapped silverware and individual condiments utilized
  • Cashiers utilize software to charge elementary students and secondary students will use ID cards with scanners instead of pin pads
