• D49 Nutrition Services COVID Lunch Update

    One of the many items that has come up during this new and rapid transition to E-learning is the use of prepayment options to pay for student meals at school.

    With E-learning set to begin Monday, March 30 and students not in our buildings, meals will not be served inside our schools. If you have auto payments set up in PaySchools for your student’s meals, you will need to log in and turn off that option. We want to make sure families are not putting money in their student’s account at a time they are not eating at school.

    Please take a moment to log into your PaySchools account and turn off auto payments, if you would rather not have your bank account charged at this time. https://payschools.com/

    District 49 will continue to offer free meal pickups for students during the suspension of in-school learning and programs. Students get a lunch for the current day, and a breakfast for the following morning.

Nutrition Services Overview

  • The nutrition services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals who are dedicated to student health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices. We're available for visits from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Help with processing a free-and-reduced application is available from 8 a.m. to noon.

    Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
     
    Nutrition departments are regulated by the federal government and part of that regulation is to operate as a self-funded enterprise within a school district. This means that nutrition services does not take any tax-payer’s funds from the district to operate the meal programs.
